Trivia

In 1973, Aaron Spelling developed two pilots with a similar theme: this one and The Letters (1973). In both pilots, letters were delayed in delivery by one year per accident or mischance; the delay would have a profound effect on the sender or the recipient. Henry Jones played the postman delivering the long lost letters in both pilots. Neither pilot was picked up for a continuing series. See more »

Great movie
28 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie back in 1973. I still remember what a great movie this was. I was emotionally touched by the 3 story lines in the movie. Each story resulted from the 3 letters that were lost in the mail. Each story is about a person who sent a letter that would have significantly changed the way someone else would have viewed them. I have been hoping that after all these years that there was some way to watch this movie again. After all these years, I forget the details of the movie. Hopefully one day someone will make a remake of this awesome movie. An updated movie probably would not involve lost letters but would involve unread e-mails. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that one day I'll be able to see this movie or maybe an updated remake.
