I remember seeing this movie when I was in college and I still think about it over 23 years later. I have been trying for years to find the movie on video or DVD when a colleague of mine at work told me about your website. Needless to say, I was thrilled to find your review. This story had it all. Drama, tragedy, suspense, romance and real life emotion. Just that someone could actually survive something like that and go through what she did in the aftermath. Then to have someone see so much potential in her and then fall in love. This was a true love story if there ever was one. Love of a doctor for a person who would be his future wife. Love for a patient who would marry the doctor who basically rebuilt her face. I was awe struck at how determined she was to live and fight for her life. I would love to see this movie be remade into a contemporary version since I have told so many friends about this story. I have only run across one friend who knew what I was talking about. I would really like to own a copy of the movie as it was. Any suggestions as how to get one? I have searched the Internet without success. If anyone knows what site to go on for a video or DVD, please let me know. Thanks
