Cool for Kids back in the 60's. Maybe not so much today.
13 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie back in the mid 60's when I was a kid. At that time I thought this was the coolest movie I had ever seen. Of course by todays standards it wouldn't begin to compare. It was in black and white and had few to no special effects. It was cool however because the kid in the movie, Roogie, could have been any kid in the world, including me. That just drew me into the movie and the rest was magic.

For years I often wondered what the name of this movie was. Then one evening, Sylvestor Stallone was on a late night talk show and mentioned this movie as one of his favorites. He described it exactly how I had remembered it, and gave it's name. Even though I now know the name of the movie I still haven't been able to find the movie in any stores.
