      From 1980, Michael Learned starred in A Christmas Without Snow. For me, it’s a little too much of a movie in search of a plot. Yes, there is a lot going on, but it’s a bit disjointed. Things happened more to make a story than it was a story unfolding in front of the viewers.

      Michael Learned is a recent divorcee, Zoe Jensen, who has just moved to San Francisco to start a new life,


      leaving her son behind until she can get settled.

      One of the more interesting parts of the storyline was watching Zoe trying to find a job as a teacher. There was just nothing available, so she had to sharpen up her office skills like typing. That’s something many people can identify with, so that was a bit of a lure.

      Zoe also joins a church choir and actually, that’s where the bulk of the plot comes ...


      • from. It’s all how these people of different backgrounds come together and sing.

        I especially enjoyed a very poignant and emotional scene, that is internally emotional, between John Houseman’s character of choirmaster Ephraim Adams and one of the elder singers. He eventually suggests her voice isn’t strong enough to sing anymore and she comes up with an alternate idea, but she has a line to him about hoping he never has to go through being

        told he can’t do something he loves. It’s the most powerful line and scene of the show for me.

        Beah Richards is a delight to watch was the grandmother of the one of the boys. Beah just makes me smile. She worked through the Hollywood system and survived. I just applaud her for all her triumphs.

        I can’t really even say there is a resolution to this film. It’s more like life goes on.
