Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn, stars of the Broadway drama Foxfire, recreate their stage roles in this TV-movie adaptation. Tandy plays a 79-year-old Georgia mountain woman, whose highly prized independence is threatened when she sells her land. Cronyn plays Tandy's husband, who though long dead offers her comfort, criticism and advice in spectral form. The story's continuity straddles both past, personified by Cronyn, and present, represented by the domestic travails of Tandy's folk-singer son John Denver. Co-written by Cronyn and Susan Cooper, Foxfire first aired as a Hallmark Hall of Fame special on December 13, 1987.
