A first in a pilot movie history " The Greatest Gift" the relationships of a real family , especially between a loving father and his son. This movie should be on vhs and dvd. This movie is a gold mine. I would really like to buy this one. Glenn Ford's great role collecting dust in some vault. what a shame.
