How can I get to see this again? Will Turner Classic Movie show it on Cable?
22 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

I have read the previous comments and would also like to say that I too was very young when I saw this movie. This movie for some reason has had an impact on me,because its a movie that I will never forget as a child. I have made mentioned of this to all that have entered my life and I have made all attempts in trying to see this movie again. Can you believe this? I seen it once when I was like 7 or 8 years old and have been trying to see this again. The most memorable part of this movie that has been embedded in my mind was when they tried to trap this Giant wild elephant from destroying the jungle village. In doing this they made a bamboo wall in front of this cliff and lured the elephant to chase them. Once the elephant did this they use one of those swinging vine that swoop over the cliff while the elephant went crashing through the bamboo wall over the Cliff. For what is was worth, I need to see this again.
