Available on DVD or VHS?
24 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If anyone has a quality copy of this two-part episode on VHS or, preferably, DVD, would you please contact me? It was filmed in my home town (Grass Valley, CA) and I've been looking for it for years! It was fascinating watching all the well-known celebrities (Anne Baxter, Barry Sullivan, David Janssen, etc.) traipsing around town, as well as a few reliable supporting actors (Royal Dano, Murray Hamilton, Dabbs Greer, etc.) whom I did not know at the time but came to be familiar with over the years. I do not believe this has had an official video release at any time over the years, so I'd be most grateful to anyone who can help me find it. Thanks!
