On Monday, May 15, 1989, Time Warner bought Lorimar Telepictures, who produced this film under the Lorimar Television name. Time Warner used the Lorimar logo until 1993, when Lorimar was absorbed into Warner Bros. Television. In current syndicated TV prints of this film, and the Warner Home Video "Warner Archive" DVD release, the Lorimar logo at the end has been replaced by the Warner Bros. "WB shield" logo. See more »
What an incredible TV movie,it left me speechless and disturbed for days. Corin Nemek was amazing and very real as Steven,I have seen many of his film and was a Parker Lewis fan when I was little but this was one was his best performance. I think it's very hard to give this film a critic because I don't think this film was made to entertain us ,it was made to educate us on the subject of Child abduction,I don't know about you but as soon as I have kids,the first thing I'll teach them is "NEVER talk to strangers" Parnell is the devil impersonated , how can you take a sweet little boy and strip him of his innocence? I hope he wont get away with it this time(He has been locked up again last year). That scene(The most disturbing scene in the movie if you ask me) were you see Steven at age 9 , smoking a cigarette while watching TV made me very sad because you just knew that it wasn't the same boy,all his childhood was destroyed and he was a child no more.
People need to see this movie,it's an important life lesson.
God bless the late Steven Stayner.
