a classic!
28 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was roughly 11 when this movie hit the TV, it was a clean direct to the point first time view of what life was really like in regards to race from that time period. It was a classic eye opener, and yes what a heart warming story, I would love to see it again. I was not even sure who starred in it until I finally started punching in movie names with Charlie in it and found it on this site. Sadly I think only my generation could appreciate such a movie back then, this generation would turn it off. Seeing these comments on this movie reminds me that I grew up at the very best time anyone could, the 60's and 70's. Thank you
