Outstanding movie which should be shown again.

The movie was so good that I purchased the book, written by Dorothy Uhnak. As a Los Angeles Police Detective, I appreciated the storyline, and am only sorry that the movie hasn't resurfaced, so that I could at least record it, since it isn't available on video at this time.
