Get out your Kleenex....
1 December 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I was very pleasantly surprised by this film and am happy that Susan Hayward's last film was a good one. However, I must warn you...it's a sad film and you should have some Kleenex nearby as you watch!

When the film begins, Maggie's husband (Richard Anderson) dies and this middle-aged lady is looking to make some changes in her life. It just happens that Maggie (Hayward) is a doctor...she just hasn't practiced in 15 years. Soon she goes into practice with Dr. Grazzo (Darren McGavin). But putting up a shingle is not a smooth and easy process and Maggie experiences some ups and downs along the way. The toughest lesson is dealing with a young lady Maggie has grown to love...and the girl is dying.

Apart from the theme music which plays WAY too often, this is a very effective film with excellent acting. I I love the scrip--as it lacks the usual clichés. Actually, it's among the best of the ABC Movie of the Week installments I have seen...and I have seen quite a few.
