Holy Moly
7 April 2015 | by (The Beautiful Coast) – See all my reviews

Having seen a bunch of these, I was prepared for the same sort of star turn, image-projecting, egotistically considered, carefully edited and sculpted, "make sure you show my best side" deal we've gotten used to. BUT... I guess I should have known better, and I certainly wasn't surprised, given the Character (with a capital C) of this remarkable person.

She may have known what she wanted to talk about in each segment, but she does (or appears to do) every one of them impromptu.

Her disquisition on her 27 years with Spencer Tracey would have been affecting on its own. But intercut as it was with his manifesto scene from "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" -- shot as it was in Tracey's final weeks of life -- her reaction to his commentary about =their= relationship (not just the one on screen) caused her eyes to widen and mouth to drop open. And the director of that film made sure it didn't wind up on the cutting table.

If you get a chance to see it on TCM, you may consider yourself as blessed as I do just now after having seen it.
