Good 70's made for TV flick/timewaster
17 April 2002 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on television in 1974 - Once. I was 7 years old and to this day I still remember how much I loved this movie. Filmed in the same style as "Brian's Song", and "Eric", it's your typical 70's, made for TV, heart-string-pulling melo-drama about the trials and tribulations of the Chadwick family. Just like the others, this one will leave you tear-stained, and with a little lump in your throat at the end. I have searched for this movie on VHS with no luck, and other than my older sister (who wanted to watch the movie and was babysitting me at the time, thereby "forcing" me to watch it), I don't personally know another living soul who has seen it. If you ever happen to leaf through your TV Guide and come across this movie being shown, set your Tivo (or VCR) and do yourself a favor. This movie is one of those lost little "gems" that is worth discovering.
