I actually seen this movie when it aired on TV
13 April 2017 | by gabriel1964See all my reviews

This movie was a very good movie in 1978. I saw it when it was aired as a made for TV movie back in 1978. There is nothing wrong with this moving. Whoever says that this is a racist movie just shows that you have no idea what racism is! This was a very good movie. It goes through the hardships of what older people go through every day of how they have to live. Then there is also the harassment of the gang that constantly makes their lives miserable and unbearable. When Martin Balsam's characters friend kills herself because she just can't take the harassment anymore by that gang and the police won't help, the fantastic way they hold the leaders of that gang until the cops come was brilliant!

Anyone know where I can get this movie on DVD? Can't seem to find it on or youtube. thnx
