Unforgettable...and I'll prove it:
26 July 2007 | by (Lowell, MA, United States) – See all my reviews

I was six years old when I saw this on TV. I know that for a fact because I was in the first grade and Mom and Dad let me stay up to watch a movie on our new color TV, which had cost Dad a small fortune. First, I remember the hitch-hiking scene because it was common in those days to see kids hitch-hiking everywhere, and my parents would constantly tell me to never do that (and I never did); I also remember the theme song, although I didn't know who sang it. The rest of the movie today is fairly predictable once one understands what it is about, and our familiarity with the young Ms. Field was also a curiosity factor with my parents and a good reason to watch this movie. The incredible thing is that I have not seen this movie since! Honestly, I have never come across it anywhere and I had to jog my memory by reading the reviews but it has all come back to me, and had obviously stayed with me. This should be proof that, as young as I was, it made an important impression on me and had influenced my subsequent closer relationship with Mom and Dad, which is still the case today...thus making this film truly unforgettable. I hope to see it on DVD somewhere and will gladly purchase it. To me it's just another glimpse into the amazing talents of the still-adorable Sally Field. And little did I know that a mere couple of years later I would be taking martial arts lessons, due to the influence of Kwai Chang Caine (David Carradine)...another passion for the rest of my life.
