This version of the play THE MEMBER OF THE WEDDING is available for viewing at the Paley Center for Media in NYC and I highly recommend it. Other than the fact that the movie version has the original Broadway cast (Ethel Waters, Julie Harris and Brandon De Wilde), this TV version is much more moving and emotional and acted to perfection by all. I wish shows like this would get released on DVD. This story of young tomboy Frankie Adams and her struggle to deal with loneliness and growing up in a small southern town in the late 40s follows the play's actions rather than the novels. With the aid of her only two friends, a black maid and her 6 year old cousin, Frankie tries to overcome her feeling of disconnectedness by attaching herself to her brother and his fiance. This leads to a dramatic conclusion to the 2nd act and a very sad revelation in the third. All of which help Frankie find her way to a new appreciation of those around her. Again, this is a profoundly moving version of the play, sensitively directed by Robert (TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD) Mulligan. See it at the Paley Center if you can.
