This production is certainly a shining star in the careers of both Gregory Harrison and Cheryl Ladd. The entire supporting cast was equally impressive. I haven't met many folk that have seen it so I was thrilled to see at least a few reviews. I'm looking forward to finding a copy and seeing it again after all these years! I highly recommend a viewing of your own!
I am just so happy to find out that I can get a video on this remake "The Hasty Heart". Like the reviewer above, I saw this film many years ago....actually 15 years ago and about 6 years ago, I tried to look for it but no video store carried it. Its a movie I will never forget....the emotions I felt when I saw it....oh I am so happy I can get the video now. Thank God for the internet. This movie is probably one of best I have ever seen. Cherly Ladd...I could fall in love with her.
I am a fan of both versions of The Hasty Heart. After having viewed the 1983 version in my high school Theatre class, I was immediately compelled to find the older version just for pleasure. I am so glad I found this moving and interesting movie once more. Thank you Mrs. Everette for introducing me and thank you Amazon for reaquainting us.
The 1983 version of The Hasty Heart. Written in 1944, the play was originally made into a movie in 1949. The original movie starred Richard Todd, Patricia Neal and Ronald Reagan. Either version is good. The accents are better in the original. The content differs slightly. Perry King is great as the Yank. Gregory Harrison plays the surly soldier unaware that he is dying. Well worth seeing. A funny, warm tearjerker.
