...but a comment on the one and only review for this movie...Camille was first done in 1936 with Greta Garbo and Robert Taylor, this is not a first rendition. So to refer to the fact that it was a shame that it "wasn't made in the age of cable, with more developed scripts and better production values." is just plain stupid. It was a t.v. movie, not a theater film as was the original. It was an attempt to revive a classic, not an attempt to be a blockbuster. The amount of effort put forth with the actors and actresses was wonderful given the hand they were dealt. No one can do a perfect justice to a wonderful story. Books don't alway's translate well to screen. And in my opinion, no one can beat the absolutely wonderful chemistry and passion between Garbo and Taylor either. So they made the remake their own, not a copycat picture. Do your research first, comment after.
