nice oldie but a goody
12 March 2017 | by galerughSee all my reviews

enjoyed this wonderful old film. It was maybe a bit ahead of it's time. People were not able to able to appreciate the progressiveness at the time and din't want the change that was given here. Never the less it was well done for it's time. good acting and nice cinematography for the era. Enjoyed the film!
