Synopsis

Melissa Gilbert's version of the memorable drama recounting a Jewish teenager's ordeal hiding from the Nazis in occupied Amsterdam with her family and their friends for two years continued the star's projects (through her Half Pint Productions) to do new TV versions of film classics, including "The Miracle Worker" before and "Splendor in the Grass" later. Originally a prize-winning Broadway play by the husband-and-wife writing team of Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, "The Diary of Anne Frank" was made into a movie in 1959 and previously staged for television in 1967 with Theodore Bikel as Otto Frank. This latest version garnered Emmy Award nominations for cinematography, makeup and costume design.
