Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member The troubles of three sisters over a four year period, Bette has the most problems of course. Well made, the earthquake scene is most impressive, and acted. Flynn is at the peak of his attractiveness and the turn of the century fashions suit Bette. Susan Hayward has a wordless bit as a telephone operator. A good show. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
