Mary Tyler Moore was perfect in part
31 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

If anyone had read the book(s) about Sante Kimes and seen photos of how she had looked through the years, they would realize how perfect Mary Tyler Moore is in the part. What is stunning is how similar looking Sante and Mary were in their teens and twenties. True, Sante eventually ending up looking like a frumpy Liz Taylor, but Mary was able to cover that territory well. Her performance captures the general sleaziness of Sante's undertakings.
