Trivia:
The scene in which Katharine Hepburn's character is riding up a hill on a bicycle was intended to be shot with a stunt double, but Hepburn insisted on doing it herself. After falling off the bicycle several times, however, she overheard a crewmember say, "God, she got old." She approached the man and said, "You're right. I have." Hepburn then signaled for the stunt double to take over, and went back to her hotel.See more »

Overlooked Gem, 3 February 2012
Author: Ron Brooks from Cincinnati, Ohio US

I remember watching this many years ago and to this day I am quite taken by the performances given. While it was a "Made for TV" movie, to this day it still leaves an impression. The musical score by John Barry was quite good and added to the film in a superb way as well.

Kate Hepburn is surely missed as she was a great actress. She led up an overall fine cast of actors that provided a lasting impression. The young man who she tutored out of an otherwise menial existence was a great actor too.

I only wish that more such productions were still made today.

I guess that the only thing that gets the green light are reality shows that are soon forgotten.
