Paddy Button: I remember the day my poor father was buried. Not a cow was milked in the village, not an egg gathered, for six whole days. It took them all of that to sober up.

Never forgot the film.
21 April 2001 | by RCraig11See all my reviews

When i saw the movie, it was the "B" movie, i.e. it had second billing of a two-movie presentation. But I loved the story, and the children, and I've always loved the name "Michael" because of this movie. I still love to hear the neighborhood children calling for their friend, "Michael"

The best part was when they discovered each other on the beach after he rescued her---when she (or he) says, "You're trembling."

I'm sorry to hear the movie is no longer available. I was wondering why there were no longer any re-runs.
