Brilliant Family entertainment
10 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this film nearly 30 years ago with my then young sons, it is a fantastic western. We have continually talked about how we would love to see it again, (my sons are now in their 30s),but to date have had no luck even finding the film ever existed. It is not on any UK database.

My wife has been trying for the last 6months and finally managed to finally find your details on the film.

Should anyone have a DVD/Video of the film could please let me know. Anyone knowing where I can Purchase a copy in DVD or Video format it wold be much appreciated. Many thanks. Dave Yates (UK)
