by Joe Masteroff
sweet tale of Christmas and two pen pals who fall in love by mail
as they quarrel mercilessly at work. Many great songs and a
production noted for it’s simplicity, which can be a very
good thing. Touching and rewatchable many times. It makes one feel
good about life. Plus: an interview with Barbara Cook about the
original production. Enjoy
"DVD-R from VHS recording of broadcast. Medium quality but hard to find item."
"There are several versions of this TV musical from 1978 (1979 USA) around, including one on YouTube. All probably taken from taped recordings of the time. The quality varies but this is the best of the four I have purchased. Only slight flaw is two minutes at start with a slightly wobbly pictures but this only lasts for the credits and after that it is very enjoyable with no problems.
Thank you - worth every penny
"The 3 Stars are only because this is what it is ... a TV copy onto DVD. That said, it's perfectly watchable, and a most welcome addition to my Stage Musicals Collection. Thank you so much. I value your services highly, and hope others will as well."
