"That Certain Summer"
« on: May 09, 2010, 05:18:33 pm »
I had heard of this movie before, but only recently ran across it on youtube.



On the evening of Wednesday, 1 November 1972, the ABC Television Network (the one that would see Ellen come out and then cancel her) presented its movie of the week: That Certain Summer, staring Hal Holbrook and Martin Sheen as male lovers, living in San Francisco, when Holbrook's character's son, played by Scott Jacoby, come to visit. Also figuring prominently in the line up is Hope Lange, the ex-wife.

Can you imagine Alma working late, or going to bed early, and Ennis sitting up and watching this?



According to Wikipedia the film won:

    * Emmy Award for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Drama (Scott Jacoby, winner)
    * Emmy Award for Outstanding Single Program - Drama or Comedy (nominee)
    * Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing Achievement in Drama - Original Teleplay (nominee)
    * Emmy Award for Outstanding Single Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role (Hal Holbrook, nominee)
    * Emmy Award for Outstanding Single Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role (Hope Lange, nominee)
    * Emmy Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Drama - A Single Program (nominee)
    * Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Film Sound Mixing (nominee)
    * Golden Globe for Best Movie Made for TV (winner)
    * Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Movies for Television (winner)
    * American Cinema Editors Award for Best Edited Television Special (nominee)
    * 1998 Producers Guild of America Hall of Fame Award (winner)
