business news in context, analysis with attitude

Playwright Robert Anderson, who wrote “Tea and Sympathy” and “You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water's Running” died yesterday at age 91.

One of Anderson’s best works also happens to be one of the best movies of 1970 – “I Never Sang For My Father,” which featured anguishing and affecting performances by Melvyn Douglas and Gene Hackman, playing a father and son trying to connect in the older man’s last days.

The best line is one that both begins and ends the movie: “Death ends a life. But it does not end a relationship.”
