"DOCTOR FAUSTUS" REVIEWS

      


THE BEST PERFORMANCE COMES FROM
ANDREAS TEUBER AS MEPHISTOPHELES,
BALD, GRAVE AND MONKISH, THE TEAR
THAT STARTS IN HIS EYES AT FAUSTUS' FALL
IS THE HAPPIEST TOUCH IN THE WHOLE FILM.

      - THE LONDON TIMES.




MR. TEUBER VERY NEARLY ACTS MR. BURTON OFF THE SCREEN.
I HOPE HE WILL HAVE AS GLORIOUS A FUTURE.

      - Penelope Mortimer, THE LONDON OBSERVER




THERE ARE STRONG PERFORMANCES FROM BURTON
AND ELIZABETH TAYLOR. BUT TO MY MIND THE MOST
IMPRESSIVE CHARACTER IN THE FILM IS MEPHISTOPHELES,
PLAYED BY ANDREAS TEUBER. TEUBER HAS A GAUNT,
BALD HEAD AND DARK EYES WHICH REFLECT ALL THE EMPTY
DESPAIR OF HELL.

HIS PERSONAL AIR OF BITTER TRAGEDY IS
ONE OF THE MOST CONVINCING POINTS OF THE FILM.

      - THE SCOTSMAN




ANDREAS TEUBER GIVES A CHILLING PER-
FORMANCE AS A DEATH-WHITE MEPHISTOPHELES.

      - PUNCH




THE MEPHISTOPHELES OF ANDREAS TEUBER
EVEN CREDIBLY DOMINATES BURTON.

              - PLAYS & PLAYERS




ONE MASTERPIECE OF THE KIND WAS COMPLETE IN SPIRIT AND DETAIL
FROM FIRST TO LAST - THE MEPHISTOPHELES OF ANDREAS TEUBER.

      - Edmund Blunden, CHERWELL




AND SO, DESPITE AN IMPOSING, YOUNG MEPHISTOPHELES
PLAYED BY ANDREAS TEUBER, 'DOCTOR FAUSTUS' BECOMES
THE DULLEST EPISODE YET IN THE GREAT-LOVERS-OF-HISTORY
SERIES THAT STARTED WITH 'CLEOPATRA'.

      - Pauline Kael, THE NEW YORKER




ANDREAS TEUBER MAKES A MOVING
AND IMPRESSIVE MEPHISTOPHELES.

      - Joseph Morgernstern, NEWSWEEK




THERE IS ONE FINE, VERY PIOUS, PERFORMANCE
OF MEPHISTOPHELES BY ANDREAS TEUBER.

      - Renata Adler, THE NEW YORK TIMES




IT IS AN UNKNOWN, ANDREAS TEUBER,
WHO STEALS THE SHOW
AS THE GENTLE MEPHISTOPHELES.

      - Barbara Falconer, GOOD HOUSEKEEPING
