Where can I get the original version of this pilot
3 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have not seen this film, but I truly would like to, as I was the main Belly dancer in it. Can anyone tell me where I can get a copy of it. I didn't even know who William Shatner or Adam West was at that time. The only person I knew was Joseph Cotton. Carey Leverette was the choreographer (may he rest in peace). Yes, even for the 60's it came across quite corny on the set, but it was a lot of fun. Please, Please, tell me where I can obtain a copy. I have been searching and searching for this for many years. I even got on Shatner's web sight and asked where I could get a copy. I never received the information. Thank you so much. Antoinette
