Four-time Oscar winner Katharine Hepburn (Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, On Golden Pond) in her TV debut as the indomitable matriarch in Tennessee Williams' 1945 play, which reteamed her with director Anthony Harvey (The Lion in Winter). The play portrays a mother whose preoccupation with her past and her unrealistic dreams for her children's futures threaten to smother her painfully shy daughter (Joanna Miles) and her aspiring writer son (Sam Waterston). Michael Moriarty plays the Gentleman caller whose visit offers false hope and disrupts the family’s precarious balance. Emmy Awards for Joanna Miles and Michael Moriarty and Best Director nomination for Harvey.
