79 Park Avenue
30 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched 79 Park Avenue years and years ago and absolutely loved it! Lesley Ann Warren is so talented and I think she was so believable in this role as a high class prostitute/madam. If I remember correctly, Lesley won an award for her role in this mini series, didn't she? Does anybody out there have any idea on how to get a copy of this movie, either in VHS or DVD? I sure wish they would show this movie again or at least make it available to purchase. It's unbelievable that there are so many reruns of every other TV sitcom and movie (sometimes showing the same movie over and over again in the same week) that it makes one wonder why they don't bring back some of those fantastic mini series on one of the cable channels.
