Truly Charming
7 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a Katharine Hepburn fan of many years and I never get tired of seeing her films. This one is truly one of her best TV films. Only she could make you believe that a little old lady could take down a convicted felon. The interaction between her and Ryan O'Neal is so sweet. The enjoyment they took in each other comes through loud and clear in their performances. Their pairing in this film was a stroke of genius. Ryan definitely holds his own against Miss Hepburn.

As someone else said, don't watch this with the idea of analyzing it; just go with it and enjoy. It's a great holiday film that can be enjoyed any time of year.
