I remember watching this a crying... it was such a sad wrap up to a wonderful series that made me laugh for years! Indeed, the movie itself, made in the was one of my first "M" rated movies... see it that brings back memories... movie ratings with an "M"!
Mary Tyler Moore- this may seem odd as a hero but I can't explain how powerful her show was to my development. She was a single woman and had the coolest apartment!!! Realized you could be a married woman but also a single woman was very mind-expanding.
