Interesting Documentary
8 July 2005 | by (Santa Clarita, CA) – See all my reviews

I found this documentary on "The Trip To Bountiful," to be very interesting. It starts out not only talking about this particular teleplay, but also about the Golden Age of Television. It also mentions the start of the Actors Studio and the great talent that came from there. There is also a great deal of character analysis by the actors that played them, and the cast and crew's memories of the late Geraldine Page. I would have liked to have seen more footage during the filming, but overall a good documentary. The only odd thing is that there was no mention of the character Thelma or the actress that played her, Rebecca De Mornay.
