Right of Way (1983)
This story about an elderly couple who start a large controversy when everyone learns they plan on committing suicide stars James Stewart as the retired Teddy Dwyer, and Betty Davis is his wife Mini Dwyer. When Mini learns she is terminally ill with a blood disease, the couple decide to end their lives peacefully, at the same time. Mini's mistake was to finally tell her daughter Ruda (Melinda Dillon), and from there, the news eventually leaks out and gets passed on to the media. Right of Way tries to balance precariously between a serious theme and a light-hearted couple, as Teddy continues engrossed in his books and Mini in her long-practiced art of making specialty dolls, with their housecats all around them. … More

Audience Reviews for Right of Way
Two giants of the screen in their only appearance together. The script doesn't do them justice although it deals with an important subject and does so without a great deal of sensationalism. The supporting cast is good but are all left in the dust by Davis and Stewart, they are fine throughout but their final couple of scenes are so masterfully done and moving as to be unforgettable.More
