Hi! How are You? Me OK. I do not know why People reviewed this movie and rated this movie when it is a 'Lost Film' Most of Us were not born when the movie played in Theaters, so We can not rate it, It is very strange when a film is lost and People rate it nonetheless. For me it is just like lying and to betray. The Film is lost and People rating it are saying They have watched it, it makes no sense, They are rating it, just for the sake of it or for just reading the plot, it is not serving the viewing Public well but just to deceive. I Hope that People will stop rating Lost Films, it is very wrong to do that. I am not against You All very far from that I respect You All, but the behaviors sometime can be very hard to take. Take care and have a spiffy day.
