Missing The Great John Denver
6 July 2003 | by astoryweaverSee all my reviews

Entertainment Tonight previewed this wonderful little film as being the last thing John Denver made. It makes me sad to think this wonderful entertainer is gone from this world and will never make anything else for us to enjoy. I wish his role could have been larger and broader. He was a great actor in addition to being a great singer. We miss you in this world, J. D.
