    • Re: (New Review) Maureen O'Hara TV- Cab to Canada (1998)

      Based on a true story, the made-for-TV Cab to Canada stars
      the indomitable Maureen O'Hara as Katherine Eure,
      a wealthy and very proper "little old lady from Pasadena."
      En route to a funeral, Katherine summons the cab driven
      by one Mike Donahue (Jason Beghe).
      In answer to the traditional "Where to, lady?,"
      Kathryn knocks Mike for a loop when she imperiously insists
      upon being driven to Vancouver, British Columbia...some 3,100 miles away.
      During the motor odyssey that follows, Kathryn proves that she's something
      substantially more than just another arrogant old dowager,
      just as the down-to-earth Mike loses his natural-born animosity
      toward those better off than himself.
      Meanwhile, the authorities are at their wit's end, convinced that Kathryn
      has been kidnapped, and are prepared to mete out harsh
      punishment for her captor.
      A pre-Sixth Sense Haley Joel Osment appears as Bobby.
      Cab to Canada made its CBS network bow on November 29, 1998.

      I really, really like this film and not only because one of my favorite actresses
      (Catherine Bell) is in it.
      The story is wonderful and sweet and the actors have done a great job.
      Especially Jason Beghe, who portrays Mike Donahue.
      You really feel for him when he's dragged all the way to Canada
      with this lady and still tries to be polite.
      The end of the movie is also great (o how I love happy endings!).
      I hope the real story ended this way too.
      If you can't get enough of Catherine, you should watch the TV show J.A.G. sometimes.
      She really has a great role in that one.
      By for now! AN
