Up goes the curtain... Muppet Show alum Valerie Harper was always a versatile lady, and one of my favorite credits of hers is The Great Mom Swap. Released in 1995, the year of my high school graduation, it's vaguely based on the Betsy Haynes novel of the same name and is unusually well-done for a TV movie. … Continue reading Going Italian With Mama Valerie
