A Triumph in Visualized Storytelling
8 August 1999 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Memorable! This exquisite production brings to life the words of Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, William Allen White in reminiscence after the death of his teenaged daughter in 1921. This is a feast for the literate, the discerning and the humanist. It must also be the peak realization of Ed Flanders' memorable career. He is well remembered here for his brilliant portrayal of the author.
