I must say that I am a bit partial of the movie "Five Days From Home", not for its acclaimed fame, but for its sentimental value to me. This movie was made on location in my hometown of Springhill, LA. Just for that I will give it 10 stars. Overall, I feel that 7 stars comes close to the actual rating for this film. I believe the last time I had an opportunity to see it was back around 1982 on TV, putting myself at the age of 10. Seeing it again will almost be like seeing it again for the first time. Anyone knowing any existence of this movie in any format feel free to drop a line or two. Would love to discuss it with you. Ricky Dorsey
