Where can I get a copy of this film?
6 March 2001 | by berniesheilaSee all my reviews

I loved this movie and for years I have been trying to get a copy of it. Will it ever be on TV again? Can anyone tell me? Richard Chamberlain as Raoul Wallenberg, is at his very best. Wallenberg was a man overlooked for the most part in our history of World War 2 The movie was done in just the right color and location. It was an excellent film. I wish it would be made possible to view it again.
