| Wonderful TV Movie! Donna is superb!
I saw this 1979 TV movie on HBO oddly enough one morning. I started watching it and I was hooked! Donna has to be in here 50's and she doesn't look a day over 35! Her acting is wonderful, I thought it was so cute her having a fling with an older man, her kids being wild, complete opposite from her television show which I adore. I just got done reading the Jay Fultz biography on Donna called "In Search Of Donna Reed" in the book he talks about Donna's feelings about this TV movie, the whole process of making it. You get to see her in a new light, its just great! I recommend any Donna fans like myself to watch it, even if you aren't I am sure you will enjoy it, its sooooo worth the time!A+++++++
