Pancake movie
2 April 2008 | by sklubnikSee all my reviews

Hooray!! I am so glad that I finally found the name of this movie!! Thank you. I saw this movie in grade school in Hudson, Ohio in the 80s and am so glad to have found the name. Does anyone remember a movie seen in grade school about a man's last thoughts before he was hung? Or, a movie about two kids watching a huge TV screen watching lions? Or, a movie about kids that came out of a test tube like apparatus which actually looked like a tar barrel? The education department showed us some weird stuff when we were younger. BTW, what is the deal with this blog that I have to have ten lines of text in order to make a comment?
