An exceptional production mysteriously withheld from the public by Paul Gallico.
Those of us who were fortunate to have seen this made-for-television production from the Hallmark Hall of Fame have never forgotten it and continue to hope that someone, somehow will find a way to make it available on DVD or video. My understanding is that Mr. Gallico specified in his Will that it was not to be made commercially available, but why he would do such a thing is beyond me! He wrote both the book and the screenplay and the final product was an exquisite use of the medium. Richard Harris has never given a better performance in his career, indeed, all the fuss about his appearance in the Harry Potter movies only reminds me that this wonderful performance is virtually unknown to most people. It is not an exaggeration to say that you cannot watch this film and come away unmoved.
