"Great campy fun follows three young women as they enter show biz. Patty Duke makes the entire show. Parkins is bland and Tate pretty to look at. This movie would not be the cult classic it is today without Patty Duke."
"One of Patty Duke's finest, yet most under-rated performances. She shines as the simple Sook who along with young cousin Buddy, spend their last Christmas together. An excellent tearjerker. Why no Emmy?"
"Duke supplies the voice of Lady Morgana in three episodes here. She was later replaced by Diana Mulduar (her Miracle Worker remake co-star). I laughed when I saw this as Morgana is very tall and masculine. The total opposite of Duke in real life."
"Duke made this film between Patty Duke Show seasons in 1965. It only took fifteen days to shoot. Although extremely dated, the film could be seen as an early feminist movie - until the let down in the end."
"Duke is in this all too briefly, but steals every scene she is in. She is hilarious and I believe that if this movie did better at the box office there would have been a bigger demand for her in comedy character roles in features. Here she plays Meg Ryan's mother."
"BUTCHERED DVD version of the mini-series A Matter of Justice - cut down to half its length. Do yourself a favor and catch this one on Lifetime. Duke does some of her best work here - the viewer feels her determination and spirit as she tries to avenge her son's death. Yet another example of her being robbed of an Emmy."
"This is a very sad movie. Not because Duke and Crenna are trying to find their missing daughter, but because two wonderful stars with such excellent chemistry are completely wasted. If you can, catch the 1974 TV film and the 1982-83 TV series they did together instead. PS - What's up with her hair???"
"Patty Duke and Maureen Stapleton share a magical chemistry in this harrowing adaptation of Betty Rollin's book of her decision to help her cancer-stricken mother to end her life. Both actresses were robbed of Emmy nominations."
"Duke won her third Emmy in a powerful role reversal - here she plays Annie Sullivan to Melissa's Gilbert's Helen Keller. Gilbert is no Duke in the role of Keller. This movie won the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Special."
