Storyline

Barney (Jack Klugman) owns the last working farm in Manhattan. For various reasons, city officials have decided to close it down. A special event is planned to raise awareness and money to keep it running. Based on a true story, the original title of this film was P.O.N.Y. (a double entendre alluding to a metaphoric old pony that gave kids pony rides at the farm and to Poor Old New York - the heartless city that would close down a long standing and beloved neighborhood institution).

A Distant, Almost Completely Faded Memory
6 April 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Since I'm probably one of only six people who has actually seen this film, (the other five were probably sitting in the theater with me that day), I guess I should comment on it, just to confirm that it actually exists, or at least existed at one time. When I was 13 years old, I vaguely remember seeing this on a double bill at the Fairfax with Disney's "$1,000,000 Duck." It couldn't have been there for more than a week, if that. I only hazily recall two things about it:

1. There's a scene where a bunch of kids are watching Jack Klugman on television. He is evidently trying to raise money for something or other that has something to do with them.

2. At the time, "The Odd Couple" was a highly rated television series, and I noticed that in this film, he wasn't wearing a toupee like he did on TV.

For the life of me, I cannot recall a single other thing in this movie. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
