looking for a movie and people who know about the movie
12 January 2006 | by (United States north carolina) – See all my reviews

i was the one who ran the movie five days from home staring George Peppard. I was there for the red carpet premiere in the Sping Theater in Springhill La.. I would love, love, love, to have a copy of this movie. i want to show my kids, who at the time were not even thoughts yet, this movie contains their papaw and several other people and places where they grew up. Please could any one help me find this movie or tell me where i could request it? If anyone would like to talk to me about the movie i would love to talk. I worked for Bess Eldridge who owned the Spring and Rancho theaters. I was the only female projectionist to ever run the shows. My family is all over Springhill and the surrounding areas.I would like to talk to anyone about home and all of its fun stories of the most interesting people in the world.
