An All-time Favorite
1 December 2002 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

I'm amazed that I am not alone. Enjoyed reading everyone's comments. Seems like we have similar memories of Million Dollar Movie. I, too, would love to see this "classic" on DVD or videotape. Wonder how that could happen. It would be a real crowd-pleaser. Still waiting to find it out there.
