When we see a closeup of the envelope full of money that Michael addressed to Alexis, it says "To Papa Bear with Love, Micheal" - apparently, he has spelled his own name wrong. See more »

Finally - I have found that this movie really exists!
20 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie with my sister years and years ago. Now I know that it was actually in 1972 because I have just accessed this info on IMDb. This movie has haunted me for many years, but I never could find any reference to it when I either looked online or asked at my local video store. I was beginning to think that I was crazy - or maybe that I had remembered everything wrong! Maybe it wasn't really called Sandcastles and maybe Jan-Michael Vincent did not star in it. I really would like to see this movie again. I remember that it made me weep, it made me hope, and it startled me that something so wonderful could be on television. I never was much of a television watcher, but this movie was not a typical TV movie. I loved it and I can't wait to tell my sister that there are other people who remember and enjoyed that movie as much as we did. Sandcastles defined Jan-Michael Vincent to me. I don't think he ever again looked so good or acted so passionately. Anything that I saw with Jan-Michael Vincent in afterward paled by comparison, but all was forgiven because I knew his potential.
