Where did you see it?
7 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'd like to own a copy of this film, or at least see it. I'm willing to travel to do so, as part of a research project. But I'm not a film historian and haven't contacted any of them yet to see if they can help. I will whenever I find more time for this research project.

Still, if someone could review the film here in 1999, there must be a source somewhere. But where?

I've checked all the usual sources and see no evidence that it was ever released on VHS, much less DVD. I also didn't see an entry for it at Turner Movie Classics.

The film is based on a book by Emile Gauvreau (his name has been misspelled "Gavreau" at times), a newspaper editor in the 1920s. He is listed as a co-author of the film. (I've filled out a correction form for IMDb with the corrected spelling.)
