I love this version of Madam X
24 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching the Lana Turner version of Madam X. Then in 1981 when this film first came out on TV I was right there. I really loved this version because I think Tuesday Weld was a better actress. And the film was in color too. I would say to anyone if you haven't seen this movie your have missed a great film. It is a tear jerker for sure, and every time I am in the mood to cry I watch this movie. I have this movie on VHS tape (got it in the in the 80's or 90's) and I watch it from time to time and never get tired of it. I have family that borrow the movie too all the time. We Love it!! I completely recommend this version of Madam X.
