And then again there's also the love of a companion who enters the picture, there are some off the wall events that
make this not a sad story, but in its own way a feel good movie, how can it be when she's dying? get this movie and
see this crazy zany lady in action. you might say she's inspiring. it just might bring a smile to your face.
This did not earn a single Emmy nomination despite excellent reviews. TV Guide gave it four stars and said it was the season's best TV-movie.
Duke loved working with Stapleton and even had an amusing story about when they'd go out to eat at restaurants together. Maureen would pocket everything in her purse. Not just the oranges, but even the orange peels! She said she was happy working with Stapleton and wanted to do so in her lifetime.
Picture is mostly crisp (a few specks that are hardly noticable) and the menu screen and selection are attractive. I would have preferred a photo of the two actresses on the cover, but I like it anyway and will settle for them on the back and on the disc itself. No extras.
Please, especially for this low price, order this movie and have yourself a good cry!
