Bye Bye Blues
27 April 2007 | by barr-17See all my reviews

This was a very engaging flick ... and told a story about people I knew. As a matter of fact, the hero of the piece was my family Doctor when I was a child ... and he was the film-makers' Father. Anne Wheeler was born after he had been returned to Canada, after being imprisoned in a prison camp in Hong Kong. As the Physician in the camp, he kept a great many men alive by forcing them to eat grubs, to enable them to consume even a tiny bit of protein, which was totally absent in their diets

This family, and the elder boys who were born before the war, were very well-known in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

I would love to get a copy of this great flick ... either DVD or VHS ..

can anyone help me to find one? Thanks !!!
