Mother Lode...Why Is It Not On DVD???
11 May 2008 | by (Hawthorne, NJ) – See all my reviews

Mother Lode stars Charleton Heston as a Gold Miner in the mountains of BC for "nigh on 30 year". Nick Mancuso (Jean Dupre) and Kim Basinger (Andrea Spalding) are a couple of adventurous gold seekers. They are also trying to find out what happened to their friend George. It is a good movie, a nice adventure. WHY IS IT NOT ON DVD? There are a lot worse films released every day. When Charleton Heston died I noticed on the long list of his movie accomplishments that Mother Lode was not included. It made me wonder how many others were not listed and why. I look forward to its eventual release. Had I known it would have never been released I would have taped it off HBO in one of its hundreds of showings back in 1983. Another movie that seems to have fallen into this problem is the film "Robinson Crusoe On Mars." It starred Paul Mantee, Vic Lundon, and had a cameo by Adam (Batman) West.
