Synopsis

A stellar cast and six Emmy Award nominations distinguished this dramatization of Barbara Goldsmith's best-seller about the bitter 1934 child custody case involving 10-year-old Gloria Vanderbilt, America's famous "poor little rich girl." In addition to nominations as Outstanding Drama Special and for its writer, production designer and costumer, it earned one each for Angela Lansbury as Outstanding Actress (as little Gloria's rich and powerful aunt, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney) and Bette Davis as Outstanding Supporting Actress (as Alice Gwynne Vanderbilt, the family matriarch). Lansbury, returning to TV acting after 17 years, made her TV-movie debut here, and Michael Gross (as Gloria's lawyer/guardian) replaced Ken Howard.
