Sole directorial effort from Charles Busch, to date, finds him playing a gay Danish nurse taking care of a dying woman and her young effeminate grandson. While not the high camp one might expect from Busch it certainly has those elements but winds up an effective and often touching tale. Polly Bergen scores here in a strong supporting turn.
