ABSORBING DRAMA!

Beautiful made adaptation of Barbara Goldsmith's best-seller book, about the sensational custody battle of 10 year old Gloria Vanderbilt, that took place in 1934. Great cast, with Angela Lansbury and Bette Davis taking the acting honors. Detailed and very real, with a nice period flavor. This is a true but ultimately sad story. One of the best TV mini-series ever made.
