“A Patch of Blue” was on TCM last night, and I was amazed at how quickly my 11-year-old daughter was completely hooked. Normally, she’s very hard to please, and black and white is normally something that causes her to leave the room. Last night, however, within five minutes of my turning it on, she had pulled up a pillow next to me and was completely engrossed. I hadn’t seen the movie since I was in high school, and I was amazed at how much I still love it.
Did anyone else catch it? Are there any other fans out there of this near-perfect film?
