This movie is part of my childhood memories
9 November 2003 | by (Washinton) – See all my reviews

This movie is a wonderful film that I have been trying to find on dvd for my children to watch as I did when I was young. Didn't know it was a TV movie which goes to show just how good of a movie this film was.

Mickey roonie and his voice is part of my childhood..
