The Shell Seekers 5 5 2 2
Hallmark Hall of Fame are always the best movies. I just reread The Shell Seekers after many years and had seen both movies, with Angela Lansbury and later, a remake with Vanessa Redgrave. The Lansbury production was my favorite - so well adapted from the book and played by Ms. Lansbury. I know I have to have this movie in my collection for reviewing many times. September 1, 2014
Good movie This is another great movie from Hallmark. Angela Landsbury is always so wonderful in every movie she's in. June 26, 2013
