would like this issued in DVD
20 July 2012 | by jb-307See all my reviews

It has been 11 years since bksand wrote: "If there is someone out there who could help, I would greatly appreciate it. I was an extra in this TV movie as a child. I would like to get a copy of this if there is one available. Or I would like to know when it will be airing again.

Thank you!"

I also would like to see a copy but cannot find it on DVD or even VHS, so I am looking for a copy. Kay Lenz in particular is a favorite of mine. I want to see all of her movies.

Has anyone received any positive feedback in all these years? It seems enough time has passed for this film to be re-issued.

How can we get the holders of the film rights to release the old shows once again. Another great old old movie is "Heaven Only Knows" also known as "Montana Mike" with Robert Cummings starring as the angel who came to earth to help the gambling saloon keeper, Brian Donlevy, save his soul. The opening scene is coming into the Montana town with its name over the main street - the name of the town is "Paradise."
