Good movie! I wish I could find it!

I enjoyed this movie! It has been a long time since I have seen it, but I remember it being a lot of fun to watch. I think I was about ten, and I had never even heard of telekinesis before seeing it, so my mother and I did some research after the movie was over. Found it to be an interesting subject! I am amazed at the assortment of talent this movie boasted, yet it did not do well: Vic Morrow, Tim O'Conner, Persis Khambatta and a very young John de Lancie! And Bob did a great job in this movie! I wish I could see him in more stuff. And I wish I could get this movie on tape or DVD!
