When the Hallmark name was quality you could count on.
22 February 2019 | by jjnxn-1See all my reviews

Long ago now before Hallmark started mass producing mind-numbing romance pablum their Hallmark Hall of Fame productions were the benchmark for quality television. Either well crafted new material or renditions of classics, such as this, which drew the highest caliber of talent which invariably became award magnets.

In this case, taking into consideration of the limitations of the time and the newness of filming in color, this is an accomplished production with a cast, Julie Harris, Christopher Plummer, Hume Cronyn, Jason Robards and Eileen Heckert, of staggering skill at work on one of the masterworks of literature.

The actors, particularly Julie Harris as Nora will knock your socks off.
