When it premiered in 2011,  “The Lost Valentine,”  became Hallmark Hall of Fame’s  most highly rated movie in four years and won CBS-TV the night with over 15 million viewers tuning in.  Receiving critical acclaim, and nominated for several awards, in 2012, the film won a “Faith and Freedom” award for inspiring American values and ideals at the nationally televised, star-studded, 20th Annual Movieguide Awards (February 2012).  The film has since gone on to become a Hallmark Classic, airing each year on the Hallmark Channel in February,  and is now part of Hallmark’s Gold Crown DVD Collector’s Edition.  Additionally, since the 2011 premiere, it has taken almost five years for a TV movie to rival the ratings for “The Lost Valentine.”
