Actor name for "Teacher" incorrect
30 January 2006 | by marny-carrSee all my reviews

I would like to indicate that the name of the teacher listed in the credits is incorrect. The deaf education teacher in the scene where Ann Margret's character has gone back to school is my sister, Debbie Mabon-McIntosh. At the time, Debbie was teaching in Toronto at a school for the deaf, and the school was approached for a female teacher, approximately age 28, to give a brief lesson in sign language for the scene, which was filmed in Toronto. I'd like to see Debbie's name appear in the credits, largely because she passed away of ovarian cancer in June 1993, and her daughters (naw age 17 and 16)would like to see their mother's name in the credits. They have a great photo of Debbie with Alan Alda.
