I've been searching for this since 1969
27 May 2001 | by (jacksonville,fl) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent film. The cast does interact well with each other and though I was only 16 when I saw it, I have never forgotten it. I, too, would love to own this, but I'm glad that I've at least found others who know and love it as much as I do.
