This little gem is perhaps Elizabeth Montgomery's finest performance. She portrays a blind woman who first acquires a guide dog, becomes very attached, then is able to regain her sight and makes a decision that's a real tear-jerker.
Too often we forget what a brilliant talent Ms. Montgomery was, thinking of her only as "Samantha" but this movie is a vivid reminder of her excellence as a dramatic actress.
Unfortunately it's a hard movie to find. Look for it on cable and don't miss it if you have a chance.
