Originally shown on CBS on December 3, 1972, this movie was actually a very low-budget production recorded on videotape. It was repeated several times in the 1970's on CBS during the holiday season; it was rerun for the very last time on CBS on December 25, 1987 after a long absence. In 1992, it was finally released on VHS by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, and then on DVD in 2007 by Paramount Home Entertainment, via CBS Home Entertainment. See more
