Picks and Pans Review: Ghost Dancing

UPDATED 05/30/1983 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 05/30/1983 at 01:00 AM EDT

ABC (9-11 p.m. ET)

Dorothy McGuire, who has aged gracefully since her film debut in Claudia 40 years ago, radiates dignity and strength as a farmer whose once-lush land is being turned into a desert by an evil city utility. Admirable in intent, this melodrama unfortunately lacks a clear emotional focus. Bo Hopkins co-stars as a public relations man for the utility. Phil Penningroth's script won the 1982 ABC Theater Award. Maybe it reads better than it plays.
