Golden Girl may not have made cinematic history. However, it's a movie I've never been able to forget. I saw it for the first time in the 1960s and now, in 2005, I still remember it fondly. So it ranks with other movies like that - movies with Deana Durbin, Jeanette McDonald/Nelson Eddy, Shirley Temple, Bambi, Sleeping Beauty, The Parent Trap, The Time Machine, Journey to the Center of the Earth and so on. Some movies just bring back a time to us that we remember fondly, as these do for me. I just hope that I'll find a VHS copy of this film somewhere sometime... These aren't easy to find but worth the effort.
