Editorial Reviews

The great Lucille Ball (I Love Lucy, Stage Door, Yours, Mine and Ours) plays Florabelle, an elderly bag lady struggling to survive on the streets of New York City. She carries her most prized possessions in a shopping cart, and has staked out a Manhattan street corner as "home."

When approached by Carrie, a curious young social worker played by Daphne Zuniga (Melrose Place, Spaceballs), Florabelle introduces her to the underground of Grand Central Station and the details of daily survival. Together both women discover a new perspective on their lives.

This is such an important movie in Lucille Ball's career. It's heartbreaking and humbling. Hearing Florabelle call for her son while pushing her shopping cart in New York City is enough to bring you to tears. I was very moved. If you didn't already know Lucille Ball was a dramatic actress, you are in for a suprise!

This is a great movie to own, especially if you're an obsessive Lucille Ball fan! Although this movie has been available in various 'underground' channels it's great to own a copy that is crystal clear the way it was first created and shown.

Lucille Ball's performance is steller in this made-for-TV movie and a great showcase for the talent that the world usually associates with her comedic routines from her days in "I Love Lucy". She draws the audience into her plight and sympathy is garnered, possibly through her celebrity fame, for her character of Florabelle.

Lucy had a difficult time in making this movie due to the heat of New York City while wearing her street wardrobe. She suffered dehydration and at the age of 74 suffered several minor strokes. With all this, she never let her performance suffer in this "Must-Have" movie! Concidently, Lucy's character, Florabelle, was named after her real-life grandmother!

If you're a Lucy Fan - you MUST get this movie as an honor and tribute to the final movie performance from one of the greatest Red-Heads that ever existed!

This movie was the great Lucille Ball's second to last performance of a legendary career. This is a somber film in that it shows what it is like for the homeless not only for those who live on the streets of the large citys but the smaller ones as well. Lucy gave a sharp performance as an elderly street person and Danaphe Zunige likewise as the compassionate social work. If not for the fairy tale like ending this would be a perfect film.

I've waited almost 18 years for this movie to come out on DVD - and what a surprise when it did - I've missed it countless times on television (Computer literate - can't set my vcr) - but a friend recc'd it - and I can't believe it - I freaking cried like a baby at some of the stuff that the homeless go through -

Lucille Ball is a wonderful actress - and this just puts the cherry on top of her wonderful career sundae. She's both light-hearted but heartfelt in her portrayal - and most of all - she gives her character truth and depth.

You want a great movie that isn't just a "chick flick" or a "Dude's dream"? This is it - it will effect everyone - young and old - and give them a more compassionate look at the lives of AMERICA'S ignored population.

Lucille Ball, though remembered mainly for her TV comedy "I Love Lucy", shows here that her acting abilility in serious drama was as strong as ever. Stone Pillow was made for TV in 1985 which made a serious social comment on the plight of the homeless in New York. It was shown on TV in the UK as a tribute to Lucille Ball's death. It was a priviledge, but tearful experience to watch, and I had to wait some 20 years before the release of the film on DVD was realised. Importantly for UK viewers, this is a Region 0 DVD and is highly recommended.

This movie was great. If Lucille Ball had not played the role of Florabelle I would have not even purchased this movie. Even though there is some dramatic points throughout the movie there is also some funny moments (don't know if its intended), but when Lucille Ball said a line that was kinda sarcastic it made me laugh, I guess that's just the Lucy charm. Great movie for any Lucille Ball fan. This movie helped pivot the CBS Series Life With Lucy.

This movie from 1985 was the last movie performance of Lucille Ball before her death in 1989. When it was filmed, Ball, who's early drama career became pretty much forgotten because of the name she made for herself in slapstick comedy, stated that she made this film so her public would not just remember her as a dizzy redhead. She wanted to be remembered as an actress who could play virutally any role, and that she could! This in my opinion was her greatest dramatic role. This is not the Lucy America knew as a coniving, scheming redhead who always managed to get into something she had to find a way out of. This is a whole new dimension of Lucille Ball. Grey haired, head lice, dirty, down and out with no social status, her character is a bag lady who has hit the absolute bottom living on the streets of New York City and struggling to survive. An outstanding performance on her part, in this "made for TV" drama. Her rendition of the bag lady Florabelle, will certainly make you stop and think about homelessness. After all, Everyone loves Lucy. When you see someone you have loved for half a century, now aged and homeless, it hits home. In addition to Lucy, Daphne Zuniga also gives a shining performance as the young social worker who sets out to get Florabelle off the streets and into a home of her own to live out what remaining years she has. The problem is that Florabelle has been on the streets for years and knows no other way of life. You will be enthrolled as you watch to see how it will all end. Very good quality all the way around. If you are a diehard Lucy fan, You HAVE to see this movie. If it's not in your Lucy collection, you don't have one. I highly recommend this film.........
