Gale Sondergaard was terrific!
28 July 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Altho' I mentioned in an earlier comment("Love of Life") that the only soap I had ever watched was "Love of Life",I had forgotten about this one & I always watched it for the short time it was on TV.Gale Sondergaard was terrific as Amanda Key--she was evil personified! I even got the original book,on which the programme was based,out of the library.It was very good,but nothing like the TV series.The film,which I also saw,was more faithful to the book.I was very disappointed when it was cancelled,as they didn't tie up the loose ends,so viewers were left hanging w/ unresolved story lines.I probably would've found it more satisfying if they had done a final episode,detailing what would happen.
