Truman Capote's "The Thanksgiving Visitor" was originally published in the November 1967 issue of McCall's, then in book form, then produced for television -- all within the same month. (How'd he manage that?)
Written 11 years after "A Christmas Memory," Capote returns to the Monroeville of his childhood. Like "A Christmas Memory," we see Buddy's deeply intimate relationship with his dear Sook. Unlike "A Christmas Memory," we see the dark torment of Capote's youth.
Starring Geraldine Page as Sook (she won an Emmy for her performance) and Michael Kearney as Buddy. Adapted for television by Capote (who also narrates) and Eleanor Perry. Directed by Frank Perry.
