Get a Copy
3 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If anyone knows where i can get a copy, please email me at kimpossible1969@sbcglobal.net I have been looking for this movie for a long time. I called everywhere I have looked on line and it is no where to be found. I don't understand how you can get movies from the fifty's but you can get a movie made in 1975. Any ideas would greatly be appreciated. Out of all the movies i remember this one the most as a child and would love to get it. I loved this movie. I thought for sure there would be more people looking for it. Going skating in the 70's as a child and then going to see this movie was a great memory for me.

Thank you! Kim :0)
