Cindy 1978, I do own a copy
1 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hello, I was browsing movies online and I ran across this page. I saw Cindy when I was a little girl and fortunately for me I recorded it and I still own the cassette to this day, and with the advances in modern technology I have been able to convert it form VHS format to DVD format. I loved this movie and I still watch it every chance I get, my nieces also love it, we sing every song in the movie each time we watch it.

If you would like a copy, you can contact me at krystalven524@yahoo.com, and I will be happy to send you one for free!! Hope this helps you guys out!!
