Amazing how much was conveyed in 50 minutes!
21 December 2007 | by flowwalkerSee all my reviews

I am amazed at the way this production was able to convey so much of Nathaniel Hawthorne's famous novel in 50 minutes! -- and that includes brief commentary by Shirley Temple before and after the story. Much is missing because of the time restraints, and there were a few alterations, but overall, the feeling of the novel and characters comes through very well. Especially good were Martin Landau as Clifford and Agnes Morehead as Hepzibah. John Abbott as Uncle Venner was also very convincing, and seemed like a thoroughly American older philosophical man. I would never have guessed at his English birth. Bravo for the quality of fine performances!
