Should Be Required Viewing
27 October 2005 | by (Aylmer, Quebec) – See all my reviews

No matter what your faith, the message from this movie is clear. I too used to see this at Christmas time in school on the reel-to-reel, and it was a favorite for us all. This move, along with "The Selfish Giant" were truly happy memories of my childhood, and judging by the comments I have read here, I am clearly not alone. How many other movies you saw in school can make you say you remember them as well as a movie like this? Fantastic stuff for all ages. I am very interested in getting this movie on DVD so I can share it with my children. Any ideas on where I can find this movie and/or "The Selfish Giant"? Sweet movies like this are not made any more, it is remarkable these are not already available in video stores. There is a huge market of people our age who remember this movie and would love to watch it again as adults. *UPDATE* I just watched this and "The Selfish Giant" at YouTube. You can't download them but they are there for free in three parts each!
