Veteran British "heavy" Donald Pleasence has the 1960 programmer The Big Day all to himself. Pleasence plays a businessman who has overextended himself financially, and overplayed his hand in his personal life. His already rocky marriage is further threatened by his impatient mistress. Adding to his headaches is his go-getting brother-in-law, whose salesmanship savvy may very well lose Pleasence his job. Donald Pleasence is so much better than his material in The Big Day that it might be advisable to turn the sound down and revel in his silent emoting.
