Trivia

In a 2012 interview on NPR, Jennifer Edwards said that the incident was still so infamous into the 1970s that after she was an adult, she was approached to guest-star on an episode of "The Love Boat" in which she would have appeared as a fictional version of herself falling in love with Joe Namath, who was the Jets' quarterback during the interrupted football game. The episode never occurred. See more »

Good cast wasted in one dimensional roles
2 February 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Actually the cast were stunning, Jean Simmons, Michael Redgrave, Maximilian Schell. The scenery was spectacular also. However the grandfather's role was too thin, there should have been more depth to his character apart from a guy who did not want his daughter to ever leave and as a result refused to play the organ again and lived as a recluse. Some of the scenes between Heidi and her grandfather and uncle are quite touching. Jean Simmons is wonderful and makes the most of her part as a governess in love with the uncle. 6 out of 10 by me, 9 out of 10 from the child in my life.
