ball osmond henry fred

(ABC, 12/8/1978, 120 mins). Marie Osmond made her dramatic acting debut playing a poor little rich girl who loses her heart to a penniless immigrant in New York of the Gay ’90s in this variation of “The Gift of the Magi,” the O. Henry tale that has the young woman cutting and selling her long hair to buy a watch fob for her husband who secretly has sold his priceless watch to buy a set of jeweled combs for his wife—all of which, naturally, happens in the final minutes of this film.
