Great Love Story
18 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie over twenty years ago and enjoyed it so much, it boasts a great cast Lesly Ann Warren was superb as was David Dukes and Marc Singer. There have been many mini series made since this one but none of them has been better than 79 Park Avenue, its very rare these days to see a movie that you can understand from beginning to end and that's what makes this one so unique and unforgettable, because love flows without boundaries and this movie lets you believe in love and for those who don't believe will,which is why I would very much like to see this movie again so if anyone out there knows where it's available I would appreciate them letting me know.
