In an interview published in the New York Times on 20 December 1993, director Anthony Harvey said that during filming of this movie, Bette Davis "absolutely took a dislike to Faye Dunaway... I would line them up for a two-shot," he said, "then look through the camera, and I couldn't see Bette." Each time, Davis had inched her chair away to evade a tete-a-tete with the younger Dunaway.

Incredible true story of real life preacher Aimee McPhearson and what could have really happened when, in 1926, she disappeared. Later on she reappeared insisting that she had been kidnapped. Absorbing and fascinating movie that ends with a sensational courtroom hearing. Faye is superb as Aimee and she is matched scene for scene by Bette as her mother. Their clashing acting styles pack an emotional wallop. Atmospheric direction by Anthony Harvey and great period costumes by the great Edith Head. One of the best TV movies ever made.
