Are you tired of only wondering about this?.....

.....then by all means let me know directly at the above e-mail address so that I may arrange for a copy for you. A true wonder with much to recommend it, including a fascinating early appearance by Michael Keaton as a socially pro-active young filmmaker trying to pitch his latest work, a curious musical designed as a plea for hiring the handicapped (or rather, the physically challenged, for those partial to being politically correct without fail). To help drive home his message on behalf of the disabled, he's recruited a motley crew of 'able' supporting characters played by the likes of Carroll O'Connor and Betty White….indeed, all playing themselves. A genuine curiosity piece that really must be seen and heard to be truly appreciated. And once seen and heard, it will never be forgotten.
