This three-part film, adapted by Truman Capote from his short stories, was originally intended as three television specials. However, only one of the stories, "A Christmas Memory," was broadcast, winning both an Emmy and a Peabody Award. The three tales were then re-edited into a

theatrical film that was given a limited release before being made available to its intended market, high schools and universities. Though each segment clearly suffers from its truncation, as a whole this is a strong, sensitive film blessed with some fine performances. "Miriam" features Mildred

Natwick as a nanny who is slowly losing her mind. "Among the Paths to Eden" is a beautiful story about a spinster (Maureen Stapleton) who looks for a husband amongst widowers visiting their wives' graves. "A Christmas Memory," which Capote narrates, is a sensitive drama about a young child who

watches a loved one (Geraldine Page) slowly lose her memory as years go by.
