Excellent movie that was underrated!
21 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on TV in 1975 and was so taken by it (I went thru a box of Kleenex watching it) that I have been looking for it for 30 yrs.! I couldn't remember the title but my memory was correct that Arthur Hill and Robbie Bensen were in it. Also that it was based on a true story. It seemed to fortify the old adage "only the good die young". I have looked thru all kinds of movie sites and only found it here! Thanks, IMDb for listing this excellent movie, which should have won some awards but never did! Does anyone know if it is available on VHS or DVD? I sure would like to have it! . . sincerely, Sharong in Illinois
