Geraldine Paige is Sook. I haven't seen Patti Duke's version but why should I when Paige's performance was so perfect. I remember how real the characters were to me at the time I first saw it in the 60's. Would anyone know where I could buy Paige's version of A Christmas Memory? I have searched for a copy of this TV movie for many years. Also scanned the TV programming to see if it would be broadcast again year after year. I would like to ask the networks why hasn't this been shown each year? You may be very surprised to have a huge audience. Sometimes "old" is better. If a movie is not broke, don't fix it. I love "Its a wonderful life" with Jimmy Stewart which is shown 100 times each Christmas season but I think if this movie was added to the programming, it would be refreshing. If I ruled the TV networks, it would be on annually for this generation to feel the true spirit of Christmas.
