Love Takes Wing-Only Angels Have Them ***1/2
This is a wonderful, endearing film which appears to be the beginning of a series on Hallmark network.
While it resembles the former Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman television show of years back, we need more of this quality, heartwarming tales.
Two female doctors venture forth to the west, this time Missouri. In a rural area, they encounter a cholera epidemic as well as the usual superstitions, prejudice and viciousness of a town in believing that the orphans caused the outbreak.
82 year old Cloris Leachman is just wonderful as a dedicated woman working in the orphanage. There is also fine acting by Patrick Duffy as the conflicted mayor of the town and by director Lou Diamond Philips, who also plays a heavy in the film.
One doctor soon finds a male interest and by the end of the show, they wed. Of course, just like Dr. Quinn, they adopt Lillian, a precocious youngster caught up in the epidemic, who acts like a young Florence Nightingale.
Looking forward to the continuation of this Love series.
