Did You Know?


The television set at the ranch is a modern model and much too small for that era. A model in the 1960s was much larger because it uses vacuum tubes which gave off a lot of heat. And when it was turned off a little white dot should have appeared on the screen which didn't happen. See more »

If I Had Known it was a Comedy
1 December 2018 | by ETO_BuffSee all my reviews

There's no indication anywhere that this film is a dark comedy, probably because no one would rent it. I don't personally feel like the subject matter should be made into a comedy, but some people might like that sort of thing. If I had known that this was a comedy, I would not have rented it. The acting is pretty atrocious, too.
