I loved the movie and would love a copy
10 April 2004 | by lynda77See all my reviews

I used to watch this movie when i was younger and i loved it especially the mountain scene and the country music sung by Dolly Pardon if anyone knows of where u can get a copy could u please let me know.I know it must be rare to get but if any comes across one could they please let me know as i would really like to watch it again and show my kids as they love those kind of movies. I remember watching it on television and if i could remember the channel that it was on i would even ask the television station so if any knows of where i could get a copy or can remember the television station it was on i would really appreciate it if you could let me know.
