School House Films: Movies I saw in school.
24 August 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

The Diary of Anne Frank (1980) was an interesting made-for-t.v.-movie that I saw when our class was studying the Diary of Anne Frank in middle school. The production values were good and the acting was pretty solid for a t.v. movie. I was impressed by the acting of Melissa Gilbert. It was a lot better than I expected. I was used to her whiny performance on LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE and other made-for-t.v.-films. Maximillian Schell was perfect as her father. The only thing that I didn't like was how short the film was. I wished it could have been longer. We barely got to know the characters. Their performances seemed rushed. Other than that nitpick, it was great all around.

Highly recommended.
