Fun flick
18 July 1999 | by overseer-3See all my reviews

Debbie Reynolds is her usual feisty self, and gorgeous Steve Forrest (Dana Andrew's brother) is the fellow who wins her heart, in this fun film about a "widder lady" bucking convention in the 1800's to go out west and make a new life for herself and her children. Catch it on AMC sometime; it is not out on video.
