Goofs

There is a painted backdrop of the school visible through Addie's kitchen door in at least one scene. However, the outdoor location shooting shows that the school was located in quite another direction from her house; there's no way it could have been seen through her kitchen door in that shot.

I haven't seen this t v movie for many years, but the fine acting and storyline make it a picture that you would remember always and want to see again and again and I don't know why this hasn't become a Christmas classic.
