I have looked for this movie for 23 years!
12 September 2004 | by (TN/USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie one time in 1981 on HBO and have looked for it since.

No movie has ever touched me the way this movie has. Until today, I didn't even know the name of the movie only that a Van Patten played the lead male role. I don't know why but finding this movie has been heavy on my mind lately.

It is the best love story ever made and I will spend the next 23 years searching for a copy of it if need be. If anyone can advise me please reply.
