I seen this TV movie back in 1989 it was so great so sad I would love to see this movie again .. I know what she done was bad but what they put her though is worse ,, my children where very young when this movie was played on tv back in 1989 I have talk to my children about this movie many times over the years and I keep a eye on my tv guide list hoping that someday they will add this movie back on tv once again for all the young hearts to see .. this movie is a A++ to me .
