Why isn't it released?
17 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, where is it? This was one of the most compelling productions of the story I've ever seen. It was a Hallmark Hall of Fame, I know that because I got the poster from the Hallmark store back then. I agree, there was magic between the two and Scott was at his best. He WAS the Beast. No dancing teapots or children's trappings, this was adult fair and riveting in its emotion. Why isn't this released? Scott is dead, could it be tied up in court somewhere? We need a petition. I remember it being very dark, in subject and in setting. The castle was foreboding and it made Trish V. that much more lovely. The on screen magic between this husband and wife team, at the time, was palpable. I really want to see it again, better yet, own it!
