Who Will Love My Children? (1983)
Powerful, emotional, unsentimental TV movie about a dying woman who wants to make sure her 10 children will be taken care of after her death.
This movie is based on the true story of Iowa housewife Lucille Fray, who got breast cancer after the birth of her 10th child. Realizing that the state would take the children away from her ineffectual, alcoholic husband, she devoted the last year of her life traveling around the state to find new homes for each of the children. A terrific script - which still holds up 20 years after it was first made. The grown children, many of whom had not seen each other since their mother died in the late 50's, were reunited on "That's Incredible," prior to the film's airing in 1983. Barbara Stanwyck won the Emmy for best actress in a TV movie or mini-series, but during her acceptance speech, she went out of her way to single Ann-Margret out for her moving performance.
Baby M (1988)
Baby M was actually shot almost entirely in L.A.
I produced "Baby M" and I would just like to respond to the kind comments from Allison L. Venezio: I guess we did what we are supposed to - that is, make people believe - because you thought the movie was shot in Ocean County, NJ. In fact, we shot for nearly 8 weeks in Los Angeles. The Whitehead house was in Van Nuys, and the courthouse was a church in Glendale. We only shot for 2 days in NY and NJ - on 5th Avenue, on the Jersey Turnpike, and in Weekhawken (although, by the time we got there, we'd lost our light and the beautiful NY skyline). I can't rate the movie, but the Television Academy nominated the mini-series for 7 Emmys, including best picture - though we lost. But happily, John Shea won "best actor".
