Worth watching for the hair and wardrobe
20 July 1999 | by Rusty-61See all my reviews

I will confess, I mainly watched this to see the wigs and clothes, and also for Wendy Malick, who is great in everything & always fun to watch. I will admit, parts got kind of boring--no matter how great the dress is, I can only watch someone pecking away at a typewriter for so long. They did a good job of not making it obvious that one actress was playing 2 roles, it was pretty seamless. THe characters barely seem to age at all from the late 30's to the 70's, but oh well. Great wigs/falls and great 50's and 60's clothes and details. Malick looks sharp.
