This movie is a classic
24 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

I'm not sure why this movie has been so impossible to find. I have been looking for years.

My mother and I saw the movie (like most) one time somewhere around 1977 and was very moved by the performance. I keep looking for a copy to give to my mom (and one for me) as she and I both absolutely fell in love with it.

It is a very unforgettable adaptation of the story. Please find a way to get this movie released on DVD. I promise I'll buy at least two copies.

:o)
