Today I am a Fountain Pen
With a teleplay written by Israel Horovitz, this rarely-screened CBC production is a sensitive adaptation of a story from Morley Torgov’s award- winning memoir, A Good Place to Come From, about growing up Jewish in Sault Ste. Marie. Living above his family’s dry goods store, ten-year-old Irving Yanover (Allan Levson) has a crush on his family's Ukrainian housekeeper Annie, played by Hollis McLaren (Outrageous). Meanwhile, Annie is going against the wishes of her father by secretly pursuing a romance with an Italian hockey player, a secret she shares only with Irving. Also starring Harvey Atkin, Helen Burns and Sean McCann.
