Much better production than all of the preceeding versions.
4 May 2001 | by (St. Catherine, Bath, UK) – See all my reviews

All of the production values surrounding the outstanding performance of Tuesday Weld in the role of Holly Richardson make this production far better than any of the versions that predated it. I think it was a great improvement over the Lana Turner portrayal of the fifties. Ms. Weld stepped into this role at the very last minute and brought a dimension and strength to the character that far surpassed earlier attempts.
