Where can I find this movie?
8 May 2017 | by gfinisterSee all my reviews

I watched this movie decades ago in the USA and now it's no where to be found. This is a really good movie, and Lee Remick is excellent in it. I remember when the book came out I think it was in the 1970s and I was in high school and everybody had that book. It had to be a best seller. The movie is so true to life. I wonder now why this movie appears to have been taken off the market? It is no where to be found, and I've been searching for this movie for years.
