Elizabeth Montgomery in a remake of a Bette Davis Classic
21 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While this is not a great TV movie it is a good re-working of the 1939 Bette Davis classic. The always beautiful and talented Liz Montgomery gives it her all playing a TV Producer stricken with a brain tumor. Liz plays a woman so consumed by her job that she ignores her personal life as well as her health. She ignores all the symptoms of her impending illness until she finally collapses at a cocktail party and falls down a few stairs. Once in the hospital she meets a doctor (Anthony Hopkins in an early role) who diagnoses her condition and eventually falls in love with her. What follows is kind of depressing as we all know where this is going to lead. Liz goes through all the emotions of dealing with her illness, surpise, frustration, anger, and also trying to deal with her love for a man who knows their time together is limited. Sad movie but if you are a diehard fan of Liz Montgomery like I am then you will enjoy it. Liz is quite sexy in the beginning but once she starts wearing an ugly short wig in the second part the reality of cancer really hits the viewer. All in all not a bad movie, just not on a par with Liz's "Lizzie Borden" or "Case of Rape".
