A Widow and a postman rediscover their youth while ballroom dancing
25 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The very fact that I remembered the exact title of this made for TV film after 36 years, says it all for me.

It was the first time I had ever seen Charles Durning or Maureen Stapleton as actors in any production, whether movie or television.

Their acting was superb -- understated and classy.

I was in my 20's when I saw this film and only now am I of a certain age where I can truly appreciate the feelings and emotions represented by these actors -- most of all it is Maureen Stapleton that made an impact on me.

A week ago, Maureen Stapleton died and right away, I said, "Queen of the Stardust Ballroom" -- such a good, warm thought to have upon hearing of someone's passing.

I would recommend this film to anyone!
