One of those timeless movies...
30 January 2018 | by zakmir-31985See all my reviews

I also watched it as a child - in the early 70's but I vaguely remember the plot or the story but remember being melancholic yet charming. Oddly enough it left an impression strong enough to last 45 plus years. Where can I watch this film?
