I'm the writer co-director of this film
5 November 2004 | by (Marina del Rey, CA) – See all my reviews

As the writer director of this film it would be unethical for me to comment on it.. but I would love to know if there is a video tape(or DVD) available.

I have only a 16mm print of it. The reviewer who mentioned the release date as incorrect.. it was made in 1953 sold to United artists and released in 1958. He also thought that the leading actor was dead two years before but that is not correct.. I do not know if he is still alive but I suggest that others search date bases to see if Michael Higgins is still with us but I know he appeared in the movie THE CONVERSATION Starring Gene Hackman... Perhaps he took the listing of the cast as having published the name with the starring name first. another thing that should be in the base is the name of the Director of Photography: Conrad Hall - It was his first feature and he went on to win Academy Awards... He died I think last year.
