"A Storm in Summer" is one of those viewing experiences that leaves an imprint on one's heart and soul. Peter Ustinov did a masterful job, as did the young actor who played Herman Washington. Fabulous performances all around, bringing to life a memorable story.
Watching this movie 35 years ago had a profound effect on me personally. I became more "heart softened" and attuned to reaching out beyond myself, considering the "life stories" of those around me, more sensitive to the heartbreak that individual stories may hold beyond the facade of surface behavior.
The story was wonderfully produced and acted, based on a very moving and memorable story -- of hearts hardening and softening. I hope Hallmark makes it available in the 21st Century. Well worth the watch!
I share the sentiment of Ted, who wrote: "I sure wish the original was available to buy or rent -- I'd love to see this movie again." Any possibility of it being made available, friends at Hallmark?
