Critic's Pick

'The Line King: The Al Hirschfeld Story'

March 30, 1997|Kevin Thomas

With Susan W. Dryfoos' Oscar-nominated "The Line King: The Al Hirschfeld Story," Hirschfeld (pictured in self-portrait)--whose whimsical caricatures have enchanted readers, primarily of the New York Times, for years--has received the warm, witty and comprehensive documentary he deserves. In 87 minutes Dryfoos acquaints us with the vigorous, hearty, white-bearded Hirschfeld (Cinemax Wednesday at 11:30 p.m.).
