Jason Robards is particularly remembered for having created on Broadway central roles in the later plays of Eugene O'Neill. He also won consecutive Oscars as best supporting actor for the films All the President's Men (1977) and Julia (1978). This tribute honors Robards in two parts. Part One presents interviews of and essays about the late actor. Part Two contains more personal recollections. Also included are particularly fine obituary and memorial notices by Kevin Spacey, Joe Morgenstern, and Charles Saydah, and a tribute by Jason Robards' colleagues at The Roundabout Theatre.
