I love this movie
12 June 2004 | by (california) – See all my reviews

I was house sitting for my aunt and uncle when I saw this movie on one of those HBO stations and I fell in love with it. I had missed the title and couldn't wait to get home to the internet and order it. But according to IMDb.com it's not for sale on DVD or tape. I'm very disappointed because I loved this movie so much.

Henry Fonda was one of the very best actors of his time and was until the very end...this movie shows it. The quality of the movie was excellent; the story was great, the actors chosen for their roles were fantastic, and the quality of the picture reminds me so much one of my other Henry Fonda favorites, On Golden Pond.

I was also disappointed to visit this webpage and only find one comment; It's a horrible thought to think that not many have seen this movie. It's a great movie that should be seen by everyone, and I truly hope that it will soon be released on tape or DVD so that the children and other generations of the future can enjoy it as much as I have.
