Synopsis

This dramatization of the life of the founder of the first alcoholic recovery house for women in Los Angeles provided Carol Burnett with another dramatic tour-de-force as the gregarious, hard-drinking Beatrice O'Reilly, whose life is turned around by Alcoholics Anonymous. Mitzie Welch, Burnett's longtime writer, along with husband Ken (who co-produced this film with Mitzie), did the teleplay.
