At the Emmy Awards ceremony, Barbara Stanwyck won the award for best actress for "The Thorn Birds" over Ann-Margaret for "Who Will Love My Children?" In accepting the award, Stanwyck said, "This is an honor. But the woman who should have won this award is sitting over there," pointing to Ann-Margaret. "I think she gave one of the finest, most beautiful performances I have ever seen. Ann-Margaret, you were superb." See more »
Two different variations exist: the opening on-screen disclaimer is read by Ann-Margret, but in the international theatrical version, it's in a different alignment and her voice is not heard. The ending credits are featured over a still image of the Fray family and in the international version, the end credits roll against a simple black background. See more »
Ann-Margaret was nominated for an Emmy, deservedly so, for her work in this film. She is, quite simply, magnificent! I don't believe that she has ever been more beautiful...sans glamour, sans big hair, sans sexuality...yet her beauty shines out from someplace inside giving her performance a layered depth that needs no other trappings. All of the actors, including the kids, are fabulous. John Erman directed this tragic tale of a doomed depression-era mother trying to find homes for her children before she dies with incredible sensitivity and manages to avoid the traps of "maudlin." A terrific film!
