"Whoa! What flimsy piece of television journalism.
This biography episode manages to make the life of Juilia Child boring and dull. My guess is that the producer has never cooked a meal in his/her life and thinks of Julia Child a big lady with a funny voice.
Please just by Julia's My Life in France autobiograpy.
It's a fast, inspiring read any night and day from this hackish disservice to one of the most important figures in American culinary history."

"This was a very good overview of the life of Julia Child, from birth to recent years, in less than an hour. Through interviews with family, friends and Julia herself, it was honest, informative, candid and at times, very humorous. Highlights of her background growing up, her schooling, her wonderful marriage to Paul Child, her forward thinking in that particular age, her comprehensive cookbooks and her critical involvement in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) (a United States intelligence agency formed during World War II), among other things, provided an opportunity to learn more about the charming, intelligent chef and her unsurpassed-to-this-day cooking show on television.
