Best Undiscovered Movie Worth Finding!
28 January 2000 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I found this web site so I could find this movie! This story was so captivating and Olivia's performance was so endearing that I was glued to the television at 2am and didn't care! For those of you who love the tales of tragic love denied and then bestowed - this is one of the best kept secrets of classic movies.
