Storyline

"Miriam": Miss Miller has spent her life as a governess for children in some of the most fashionable homes in New York. She is shocked one day to learn that one of her "babies" is expecting a baby of her own and rejects Miss Miller's offer to be the nurse for the forthcoming child. That night, Miss Miller meets Miriam, a strange young girl who resembles Miss Miller when she was a child. Miriam, critical of everything Miss Miller has or does, constantly taunts her about a loveless existence, leading to a violent confrontation and chilling denouement. "Among The Paths To Eden": Mary O'Meaghan, a spinster, strikes up a conversation in a Queens, New York cemetery with a widower who is putting flowers on his deceased wife's grave. After establishing a modest rapport, Mary reveals to the bemused man that she had come to the graveyard specifically looking for a lonely widower, inasmuch as a friend of hers had found two husbands in a cemetery. "A Christmas Memory": As Christmastime approaches... Written by Richard <ccbaxter@webtv.net>

Quotes

Narrator: This is our last Christmas together. Life separates us. Those Who Know Best decide that I belong in a military school. And so follows a miserable succession of bugle-blowing prisons, grim reveille-ridden summer camps. I have a new home, too. But it doesn't count. Home is where my friend is, and there I never go. And there she remains, puttering around the kitchen. Alone with Queenie. Then alone.

An outstanding holiday story of the heart
5 July 2002 | by (Des Moines) – See all my reviews

There is little I can add to the already wonderful comments, except to point out to individuals that there is another Geraldine Page portrayal of "Sook". The little known Thanksgiving Visitor, lies forgotten in ABC's film vault. This film, producted in 1967, was just as carefully produced & narrated by Truman Capote, as the previous year's "A Christmas Memory"(1966). I certainly wish public awareness & demand could convince ABC to commit both of these to DVD/Video.What great holiday viewing fare would both of these be!!
