I enjoyed this movie for a number of reasons, Dean Stockwell being one of the main ones. Also one of the supporting actresses looks amazingly like Elizabeth Montgomery of Bewitched. Some of the acting is very good, but the majority of it ranges from decent down to pretty bad. The story is very original. I highly recommend this to just about anyone. It's well worth watching at least once, just to say you've seen it and for the young Dean Stockwell performance.

This movie is currently available on a number of DVD's including a couple sets of older movie classics and a DVD Double Feature of Dean Stockwell with Paper Man (1971) and Born to Be Sold (1981). If you have trouble finding any of them just do a quick search on the internet and you should find one of them very quickly. Enjoy.
