A black man who works for Freddie's father also becomes interested in teaching the child, and becomes a second role model for him. A "Hall of Fame" production. Written by

I remember occasionally having lunch with Billy Shulman in the Harry B. Thompson junior high cafeteria in Syosset, NY (where we both went to school). We never became close friends, but I have always wondered what happened to him. I would love to see this film again; I remember that he did a wonderful job in the film with David McCallum and Ossie Davis. I contacted Hallmark Hall of Fame a number of years back, to see if the movie was released on VHS, but they had no early records of movies that went back to the late 60's. Maybe it wasn't called Hallmark Hall of Fame back then. Anyway, I hope I can find a copy because I would love to show it to my students at the high school where I teach. John Wagner
