When Michael is running alongside his youngest daughter Susan supposedly down a Queens, NYC neighborhood street on the way to her school, a standard Canadian 'Maximum 50 (km/hour)' speed limit sign is clearly visible instead of the U.S. standard 'Speed Limit 25 (M.P.H.)' See more »
I saw this movie with my Dad in 1979. In 1994 I ran my first marathon with my Dad and I think that was the first time I recalled seeing this movie. I have run four other marathons with him since and have been in an on and off again search of this movie for over 9 years. It is nastalgic to me know and I am hoping someone is out there who can help me locate a copy. Any assistance would be appreciated.
