Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Actress Joanne Woodward made her (surprisingly unheralded) directorial debut with Come Along With Me. Estelle Parsons stars as a freewheeling woman who decides to start over completely when her husband dies. Before leaving town, she sells everything she owns and burns all her bridges behind her. Parsons sets up residence in a faraway burg under a new name, where she pursues her first love--the occult. The 60-minute Come Along With Me was based on an unpublished short story by Shirley Jackson; it debuted February 16, 1982, on PBS' American Playhouse.
