Patty Duke is a gifted actress in many areas.
2 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Anyone who can portray herself so brilliantly in a movie of such brilliance should be applauded. I can't make it more evident the awe and respect I have for Patty Duke. She is beautifull inside and out and also actually looks like my Mom did alot.

I would have to give it away to tell you how this movie helped me. The Call Me Anna book also is brilliant. Please join me in one hurrah for anyone who is willing, as an actor or actress, to go public on such an area of sensitive and stigmatic a subject.
