Trivia

In a Loretta Swit interview she stated that no one in the cast or crew seemed to know David Ogden Stiers' phone number. When he presents the book to her and opens it she said the supposed inscription on the inside cover was his phone number and that the emotion she showed was all her. See more »

The only movie that has ever made me cry.
20 March 2002 | by xmyplobemiaSee all my reviews

Of all of the well-written, high-impact movies that I've ever watched (hundreds), this one caught me off guard. I watched this one evening, many years ago, after coming home from class. I was so intrigued by the movie that I asked my mom if I could skip dinner... as I continued to watch the movie I could not help but cry.

This is a great way of closure for one of the most intriguing shows on television. I would highly recommend watching this movie when your mind has time to think about what takes place.
