This is an excellent movie beginning for a young man growing up in Mobile with freedom of sailing and girls his age. His naval father goes off to war and relocates him to New Mexico where he discovers the sensitive world of hispanics and their culture. He is befriended by a young lady his own age and gets crossways with a local bad boy. Very well done with plot and acting.
I was lucky enough to see this film when it was first released. I still think of moments from the film that moved me. It's a wonderful film. Acting and story are quite good. I remember crying and laughing many times throughout the movie. Richard Thomas at his best, Richard Crena, Claire Bloom really at the top of their game. Even the minor characters stay with you well after the film is over. Lindo is one in particular. I've been trying to get a copy of it for years. Unfortunately, it is not available. I'm not sure if the theme of the movie is too politically incorrect. Is just makes no sense to me why the movie is not on the market. Why? Please, Universal, get this picture on DVD.
