Storyline

Barney (Jack Klugman) owns the last working farm in Manhattan. For various reasons, city officials have decided to close it down. A special event is planned to raise awareness and money to keep it running. Based on a true story, the original title of this film was P.O.N.Y. (a double entendre alluding to a metaphoric old pony that gave kids pony rides at the farm and to Poor Old New York - the heartless city that would close down a long standing and beloved neighborhood institution).

Not Especially Crucial Information...
26 December 2004 | by ajay-17See all my reviews

Just as a side fact, Edward Mann was my grandfather. David Mann, his son is my uncle and Dara Mann (now married, of course), my mother. A great man, very ingenious... he practically founded the island of Ibiza (where MTV hold their 'Isle of MTV') among other things. Unfortunately, he was always selling his projects to move on to the next and ended up with little money. Alas... I never knew him that well :( Another thing i can tell you is a forwarded memory from my mother: the Oatmeal Scene where they sit around eating oatmeal spanned many takes and they had to continue eating the oatmeal even though by the time of the final take, it was cold and horrible. Oh well, perfectionism runs in the family.
