Thanks, Amy. I haven't seen that one since the eighties, now I can compare it with Bette Davis' Dark Victory.

Thanks, Amy. I love the movie, but it's somewhat difficult to watch since it mirrors what happened to Susan in real life...it's uncanny, really.

Ditto for me, Ginger. I have the movie, which I do play from time to time. I regret that they took the dance scene out that Susan did, courtesy of Chubby Checker's instructions. Supposedly, the producers were afraid Susan's doing the twist would date the film, but it's dated when Susan makes the comment to Diane Baker when she's trying on wigs before her brain surgery, "This really is the new frontier," since that was the theme of John Kennedy's 1960 presidential campaign. I would have loved to see Susan doing the twist.
