 "Glacier Bay" Review 

Artie (James Noble, best known as the Governor from the "Benson" television series) and Connie (newcomer Dorothy Bryce) are an elderly "couple" attending a party following their grand-nephew's confirmation in "Glacier Bay," a bittersweet look at a couple dealing with the husband's ever-worsening Alzheimer's Disease. At times quite funny, "Glacier Bay" is just as often a powerful, tender and difficult film. As the elderly man losing his grip on reality, Noble offers a remarkable performance of tenderness, sweetness and, at times, downright hilarity. While Bryce's performance isn't up to part with that of Noble's, her interactions with Artie make "Glacier Bay" a valuable film to watch. Written by Frederick J. Stoppel and directed by Douglas Moser, "Glacier Bay" is a spirited film with an important message about a subject that touches thousands of lives every year.
