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 »

Kate's best late career performance, 10 May 2013
Author: jjnxn-1 from United States

A late career triumph for both Kate and Cukor this marvelous TV version of the play Ethel Barrymore made famous years before feels like it was written with Hepburn in mind so well does the part fit her. High production values give it the feeling of a feature film and the performances are most enjoyable from all. A wonderful story of the value of learning and the quest for knowledge along with the need to temper it with caring and human interest this is a reminder of the superior quality that used to be offered on American television and rarely is today. Beautiful location filming in Wales completes the charm of this fine offering. Well worth seeking out for anyone looking for superior entertainment.
