Lucky to have a copy!!
24 December 2001 | by (Western Kentucky) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film in 1986 and really liked it. After that, I watched every Christmas for it to reappear on TV, but it never did. Then, about 3 years ago, I saw a listing for it in the TV Guide. It was on a local channel really late at night. I taped it, and now I watch it just about every year. I love Angela Lansbury in it, and I love the message of hope. For those of you who can't find the movie anywhere, take heart! It may just appear on your local station one year. You might even consider contacting them and asking them to run it.
