WHY!!!!!!!!!!
7 July 1999 | by (Roanoke, Va) – See all my reviews

Joseph Mankiewicz is spinning in his grave. In the huge effort to remake classics in to TV sellers, producers forget one thing; effort. With this debotchery, along with remakes of Night if the Hunter and Rear Window, the idiots in the corporate office once again castrate Hollywood. So much for integrity. *Thppt*-raspberry
