There was a lot of movie they had to stuff into a two hour time slot. They did it quite well. This story would normally be too far fetched and corny if it wasn't true. But it was true and it makes you wonder... can people really be like this? It seems like that's how many true life movies are. Truth is stranger than fiction. The acting, period flavor, and all the visuals generally were just right. Except the scenes of Dolly driving and her at the beach. The lighting was just plain lousy. Some of the risqué scenes were not as risqué as they should have been. But I'll give them a pass on that since it was a made for TV movie. I particularly liked the fact that they used Otto as the narrator throughout the movie. Narration is a good effective way to tie up lose ends and clear up any misconceptions on the part of the viewer. This same story has already been filmed a few times in the past, and I did not see those. But I was happy with this version.

The woman being portrayed looked more like Ma Kettle than the actress that was chosen. Her lover was a mousy looking, little man with thick glasses. Aside from those gross inaccuracies, spend some time in your own attic when the heat index is 110 or when the wind chill is minus 20. The attics in all my homes had no heat, air conditioning, electricity, plumbing or a FLOOR. So; how can I believe a 100+ year old home had a habitable attic? My friend's 90 year old home doesn't even have attic access. This is easily the most far fetched, "true" story I've ever seen. In fact; I can't swallow the belief that Otto was literate, let alone a typist.
