Great TV CLASSIC !
8 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Taped this TV film in 1984 and just recently viewed this film again and greatly enjoyed the talents of veteran actors like, Stefanie Powers,(Jessie Callaway),"Invisible Strangler",'76,who showed her great acting abilities as a complicated young woman who has many mental problems and tries to help her mother move out of her home where she lived for forty(40) years. Melissa Gilbert,(Sara Callaway),"Ice House",'89, does not get along very well with her mother and simply loves her grandmother, Maureen Stapleton,(Maggie Lukauer),"Living & Dining",'03, who tries to help her daughter and granddaughter get over many of their problems which seem to pop up all over the house. There are some deep Family Secrets which finally come to everyones attention. If you like good acting and a great TV film, you just might be able to view this film on LIFETIME!
