Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
So is it simply coincidence? That’s what CBS and Betty White spokespersons are insisting.
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says he won’t argue with them, but he does note a few things.
Like Betty White announcing she will be taking a year off and if you see her on a screen it will only be in things she has done before she announced her upcoming vacation. And on the heels of that announcement comes word that Betty’s latest film, “The Lost Valentine,” is scheduled for Jan. 30 on CBS.
Sokolsky says it is not a bad film and it projects a decent story line of an elderly woman who has waited 60 years to learn the fate of her husband, declared missing in action during World War II”
But, he adds, it is long, often ponderous and could have easily been done in half the time it now occupies.
