I first saw this movie when it was on television. Later, it was out on VHS and I bought the original book which I remember having to special order for Vortman's Bookstore in Denton, TX.
I fell in love with Timothy Bottoms and the John Baker story the first time I saw the movie. During a visit to Albuquerque back in 1992 I made it a point to stop by John Baker Elementary. I took a small pebble from the ground which I still have. It was a heartbreaking yet inspiring story and I thank the previous poster for their insight. John Baker should not be forgotten. I'm hoping this one is out on DVD, but I'm not going to get my hopes up...Melinda
