Feel good

Hello IMDb, I am not very good at this sort of thing all I know is, I saw this film on TV years ago and I felt very good afterwards. It was that kind of film. This man fought against everything that was trying to stop him getting his Geese to market and he won even if it was a hard slog on the way. I remember thinking at the time that it would have been even better if it had been shown at Easter or even Christmas but where we lived at the time ( Sussex England ) it was shown in between these two holidays and I think children were in school when it was shown ( afternoon I think). Children would have loved it because it was an all family film. I have never forgotten it and have tried for many years to find a Video Rental Shop that stocked it but without any success. Now I know where to look (have not had computer long) when I can afford it I will buy it though I don't know how much that would be because I don't buy films as a rule, I usually tape what I want to keep but at time did not have a Video recorder when film was originally shown. I now live in Devon England and there is nowhere one can rent it from, so I say to everyone out there,if you get a chance, watch this film because it really was wonderful.

Yours sincerely

Elizabeth Scott Mckenzie
