The Yellow Wallpaper tells the story of a young woman suffering from postpartum depression, while examining her descent into madness as she is kept secluded by her physician husband whom orders her to rest.
Well then, the prerequisite says to take the time to 'comment on it' and so mine is just that and not a small review. I saw this when it actually aired in San Francisco in 1989 on Channel 9 (Public Broadcasting System), I think it was a series that was called 'Great Theatre' *Yo, I'm not sure about that* and I THINK, this show was hosted by the late Alistair Cook (I hope I spelled that name correctly)....
I consider myself to be a genuinely eclectic kind of a person in my tastes and interests, that's just a fact, for example, I STILL remember enjoying watching The Lawrence Welk Show and at the same time watching the Benny Hill show. Moving right along, I was 20 or 21 years old and I was very intrigued about this drama because it happened to air on a particular day that I was in my apartment/home and checking channels. My memory of the story is vague, just as the thought that suddenly flashed to me in my mind about 'The Yellow Wallpaper' and this International Movie Database but yes I do remember that story takes place in the 19th century England (If I'm wrong please forgive me) was about a woman and she is suffering terribly from some kind of depression and so much so that she begins to actually lose her mind....what I remember so very vividly is that when she finally descends into total madness, I think it was her husband who is returning home who, I think was aware of his wife's condition but not until this point how far she finally let's go....he's searching for her in the house and finally finds her and I share his deep horror, dismay, and nausea when he finally finds her and she is on all fours in a yellow dress(?) and I got to tell you....her appearance raised the tiny hairs on the back of my neck so much so that I too felt extremely, extremely uneasy and alarmed by what I saw....and I was 21 years old.
