- Event Info
It's 1948 and Daisy Werthan, a wealthy, acerbic Jewish widow, has just wrecked another car. Her son Boolie has told her she is done driving and must have a chauffeur. Boolie hires a thoughtful, unemployed black man named Hoke Colburn for the job. In the begining, Daisy and Hoke dislike and distrust each other. But over the course of 25 years, the two grow to become very dear friends. The dignified, good-natured Hoke breaks down the ornery old lady's defenses with his warm sense of humor as she teaches him to read and write. Four-time Emmy winner Michael Learned, best known for THE WALTONS, co-stars with Reginald VelJohnson, best known for FAMILY MATTERS.
