This film has a little bit of everything in it.
30 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie has only been on television one time that I know of and I really am glad that my family and I got to see it. The characters in the story are a lot of fun to be around. Both, Dan Blocker & Susan Clark, certainly do accomplish this. The backbone of our nation was built upon this type of courage and determination, and this story shows that. It is worth the time to see and it won't leave a bad taste in your mouth.
