Our Score
In an inspired piece of casting, Ann Jillian stars as - hey! - Ann Jillian in this TV biopic about the actress/singer's life: her Broadway comeback in Sugar Babies and subsequent battle with breast cancer. This is one of those triumph-over-adversity dramas that means well, but in the end tends to be just the same as all the others that went before. For fans of Jillian only (and, in truth, how many of them are there in Britain?).

Summary

Biopic of multi-talented entertainer Ann Jillian, following her marriage to a Chicago vice cop, her successful career and battle against breast cancer. Jillian plays herself alongside Tony LoBianco and Viveca Lindfors.
