A Lasting Impression
27 March 2004 | by (Flordia, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie used to air around Easter time, and when I was growing up, still living in New York, my entire family would watch it. I was probably around 10, in the 1960's and I remember how much I cried because I knew how much this little boy loved his donkey and how much his faith and trust meant, to have the courage and love to do what he needed to do for his beloved animal. These movies need to be reintroduced today, to show the true aspects of values and respect we need to be using again. I would love to have this movie for our collection, but unfortunately it is not yet made on VHS or DVD.
