Classic "if only" movie
18 July 1999 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

One of the best "if only" this had happened, or this didn't happen the outcome would be totally different. I have seen this movie only once, and that was in 1964! It's a great old movie, with well know actors. If you ever get a chance to see it....DO !!
