Zelda Fitzgerald: Seems like no matter who you start out writin' about, it always turns out to be about us. Poor Goofo. I reckon you think that if you write the story often enough maybe some time, some way, it will have a happy ending.

SARANDON & CHAMBERLAIN MADE A CLASSIC TOGETHER!
4 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

Viewed this TV film in 1974 and after seeing "THE GREAT GATSBY", it was a big let down. Just recently I viewed this film again and it had an entire different meaning, Susan Sarandon and Richard Chamberlain made this a great short story film of drama, romance and young passoniate love. The director, George Schaefer, clearing showed what life was like during WW1, the music, the Southern way of living and the same exact situations America had to face when going to War and having to say goodby to their sweethearts and the broken hearts. At times I found myself getting mad at Susan, she just seemed to give all the men in her life a hard time and made you want to see her an OLD MAID! That is good acting and that is why this film is a great Classic to view.
