This is a good movie. It is what I feel. That movie made me feel free. I haven't seen it since it aired in 1969. I watched this movie with my mom when I was 12 years old. I would do anything to see it again. I would like to have a copy of it. If I knew where I could buy it I would. This movie is one of my all time favorites. I would treasure it with all.
