Excellent Movie
11 November 1998 | by (New York,USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in the early 60's. It was shown on the Million Dollar Movie. I was in High School at the time, and I thought it was an excellent movie.

My parents were always talking about the movie "Florian" with Robert Young, and they told me they had enjoyed the movie, and that they liked the name so much that they named me after it. I would very much like to know if there is any way I could get a copy of it. I tried looking in video stores in my area, but had no luck. If anyone knows where I can get a copy, please let me know.

Thank You, Florian
