A family favorite for Christmas.
12 April 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this movie when I was very little and my family has listened to the soundtrack every Christmas. I have looked for the video to give to my Mother and am still looking for it. We even purchased the album and wore it to a frazzle. I now listen to the soundtrack on tape and try to remember when we watched it on TV. My daughter is now 18 and has never seen this version. I hope to be able to show it to her someday.

01.2007 - GUESS WHAT! My sister found this on ebay and it's on DVD! Look it up under the DVD/Video category - search Amahl and you'll be able to purchase a copy. Purchaser's comments are positive about the quality. I can't wait to see this again :))
