I just want to say that I agree with most people that feel this was a great movie and I wish that I could get a copy of it some way.
11 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was one of the lucky few that happened to get to see this movie on TV way back when, that will give you some idea of my age. (66).(Ha, Ha). I would give just about anything to be able to see it again, but I have been looking now for some time on line for someone that might know how or where I might get a copy, on DVD or VHS, but have had know luck. I for one think that it gave Dan Blocker a chance to show that he was an excellent actor. And it's a shame that we are unable to have the privilege of seeing him at work from time to time in our homes. I hope that who ever has the copy rights too this movie, will release then so that a DVD can be made, and be sold to the general public. I would sure like one and I'm sure that there are a lot of other fans of his that would be interested in having one for their collection's also.
