I read the book and found the tv adaption somewhat different. Emily is much more an intelligent and independent person than she is in the book and thank goodness Linus Roache made Walderhurst's character a man you wouldn't mind marrying. I enjoyed watching their feelings for each other blossom into love. The nephew, his wife and her nurse were not creepy in the book but I guess the writers added a different story line for excitement. I enjoyed it enough to buy the video.

Suspense, Intrigue and love....

Comments about PBS The Making of a Lady DVD:

This was a great movie that kept me in suspense from the word, "go"! It was filled with twists and was a classic case of "who dun it ". I really enjoyed this movie and recommend it highly.

Depressingly Dark

By a

Comments about PBS The Making of a Lady DVD:

I have not read the book, so do not have its story to compare this to. I found the movie excrutiatingly depressing and dark, holding out for a happy ending. Do not expect a light-hearted period film.

Comments about PBS The Making of a Lady DVD:

Well this movie has stayed with me all day.....very thought provoking....with it's twist and turns. It is really nice to have a female character that is forced to be independent and does her BEST to deal with the blows of life.

Good characters ....some dark and thriller moments as well as tender and enduring ones. There are so few good movies out there ......I am truly grateful to PBS for airing this one !
