DVD is now available
19 May 2012 | by kpetersmailSee all my reviews

I previously wrote a review of this movie several years ago, and just looked through the additional ones, with the most recent being 2009, I believe.

I wanted to let everyone know that this film IS now available on DVD from MGM; in fact they print it on demand when ordered. It is well worth having in your collection in such a pristine way.

Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Worlds-Jennie-Limited-Edition- Collection/dp/B003B3O5K4/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC? ie=UTF8&colid=3DI8X1ES4OHLR&coliid=IG3YNOGXJ4TKC

Great film, highly recommended. If the link does not work, you can go to Lindsay Wagner's page (www.lindsaywagner.com) and to go the movies/TV section, and there is a link there for the Amazon.com purchase.
