Pigeon on Movie
31 January 2008 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

The TV Program called The Pigeon that Worked a Miracle had been shown in Japan in 1960s. My father saw the movie when he was a kid and then he was so moved by communication between Pigeon and Chad (the boy in a wheelchair)on the show. It was his dream to watch the movie again so if someone had same experience and still have a material, please let me know! I have been looking for this TV show both in Japan and USA, however it has not been released on VHS or DVD. In this case, I have to ask for it in worldwide viewer. The ending of the show, The pigeon help a boy Chad to work again. I heard the story from my father and I think that it must be great show. I am looking forward to see it too. Hope someone put the comment here for us.
