Nicely and tastefully done
11 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't think I would like this, just by the original title alone. But in actuality, it should have been "The Seduction of Bliss Dawson" as you will realize if you are lucky enough to see this. You need to look for it under the re-issue title of "To Love Again". Made in 1980, it is not the too-revealing, passionate love story that the title would have you believe. It is the story of a man who loves his children more than his own life and must make a decision whether to leave them and go with the woman he feels he "loves", or stay with his wife and maintain a semblance of a marriage. Brian has a lot of screen time and at age 42, he is looking good and doing an excellent job with the role. Conchata Ferrell also is looking good in these times, although she has always maintained her lovely smile. She doesn't have a chance to use it much, though, in this movie. Anthony Zerbe, an excellent character actor (as seen in Rooster Cogburn among other things) is wasted in this movie without a good character. Lynn Redgrave must make a selfish spinster into someone appealing and sympathetic and that is hard. All in all, I would recommend it if you can find it. It is only available on VHS in used copies and a little pricey for an old movie. But well worth the buy, I think.
