One you will not forget.

It is amazing reading the other comments on this board. I could have probably written any of them. I also saw this movie when I was younger. I also have to say I could remember the movie almost totally except the name. I knew it had to be sci-fi but never would have guessed to think of Bradbury doing it. It is a touching story and I can't believe anyone who watches it can keep a dry eye at the end. It has taken me a long time to finally find out the name of this movie. I can't believe this film or short (I don't think it was actually that long) could have this big affect on so many people. This is a great film and I am hoping that I can find a copy for my collection now that I know what I'm looking for.
