Storyline

Anson Page, a lawyer with Southern roots leaves New York, his wife and his kids for Georgia. His assignment is to investigate the case of Garvin Wales, a famous writer, now nearly blind and embittered, whose royalties have apparently never reached him. Back in his native South, Page finds himself immediately exposed to what he had fled : racial and class prejudices. But he also meets his former love, Dinah, now married to go-getter uncouth businessman Mickey Higgins. Will he find out whatever happened to 2,000 dollars in rights Wales did not cash? Will Dinah and Anson renew their love story? Written by Guy Bellinger

Is this movie available in video?
22 May 2000 | by (Millville, Pa) – See all my reviews

I saw this memorable movie when I was 15, 45 years ago. It made an indelible impression on me, especially Dana Wynter, and, as I remember, a powder blue Ford convertible. I have been trying for several years now to find out if it's available in video.So far, no luck. Does anybody know if it can be had, if so how?
