When Donald and Mary are seen together in bed eating chocolate cake, creaking can be heard around them on the floor, though neither of them move. It is most likely sounds made by the crew or cameramen. See more »
A truly great film, but only once seen on Showtime
This film is superb in every way.... story, writing, direction, casting.... everything! But, alas, it was seen but once.... one time only on Showtime... and then desappeared forever from the tv scene. Something about it's Canadian genesis, some say, but if ever there was a movie that would be a real blockbuster, The Bay Boy is that film. Incredibly, I happened to see the film in it's one and only showing on cable television, back in 1984 or 85. Now, it is available only on VHS but I wait in hope that it will surface again on DVD.
I repeat, this movie is a really great film....... four stars or better!!!
