I saw this movie when it first hit the big screen in the mid 70's. I enjoyed it so much that Glenn Turman was the first actor I was inspired to do research on. When I found out he was married to Aretha Franklin, I really kept up with him. This is one of those flicks I can enjoy with company even if they've seen it before. One of those movies you can enjoy two or three times a year , like "The Five Heartbeats". I'm talking classic. It must have had some strong financial backing because the production quality was beautiful also. I don't have it in my sparse collection yet, but I'm going to get it. I don't know what it'll cost but if I have to, I'll pay as much as $20.00 for it. I know a few people I'd like to treat to a viewing of JD's Revenge.
