The most golden of golden girls-Mitzi Gaynor
1 March 2006 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

In common with a fellow reviewer I saw this movie as a teenager.I remember it vividly, probably THE FILM which made the deepest impression on my young mind. I would really love for my grown children to see it.Yes I have moved on to appreciate much more sophisticated movies,in fact have little time for the majority of films made today. GOLDEN GIRL is-was a really good feel movie that has stayed with me for fifty years. I may add that few persons have seen anything like the number of films I have devoured in my lifetime.To films every day, three-hundred and sixty days a year. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to order a DVD of this movie or if anyone would part with their copy? Lets form a Golden Girl fan club? Lyn Kristensen Oslo Norway
