Enter Laughing Reviews

Stagestruck David Kolowitz (Santoni) leaves his job as a machinist's apprentice and gets work at a decrepit theater run by Mr. Marlowe (Ferrer), a drunken old ham. Mrs. Kolowitz (Winters), David's mother, objects to his choice of careers, wanting her son to go to school and become a pharmacist. Based on Carl Reiner's recollections of his beginnings, Enter Laughing made a star out of Alan Arkin on Broadway, but Santoni is hopeless in the lead, lacking both the charm and the wit to pull it off.
