    In one way, a moving character study but in another, a sentimental short-hand into the life relationship of an old couple married fifty years but coming to an end. As a made-for-television film, it is too short to be really into the joy & pain of such a life (see Jon’s comments on a longer 90 minute version) & therefore the events in the couple’s lifes are made more caprious than revealing. The advantages of the piece are the four leads, especially Stephen Collins & the eternally young Myrna Loy. But too often,we see the results of actions without seeing the real dramatic reasons for those actions. A chance to see a rare television movie with two great performers at the end of their careers.
