Two Thumbs UP; Where IS it?
I saw this black & white film back in the early 70's on television, when they used to show movies in the afternoon, and not hours of info-mercials...!
It's stuck with me all of these years; I'd like to see it again. Where IS it? Carol Lynley is a be-a-u-tiful little thing, and Brandon De Wilde was good also (it was good to see him in something besides SHANE).
I was a young teenager when I viewed the film; it did play like a "Father Knows Best" episode, but I didn't expect it to go so far, even to include an unexpected teenage pregnancy...! We barely understood the consequences of that issue in the public school at the time, quite a surprise to see it on television (then).
It made an impression on me as a youth; I'd like to see it again, but don't know why it's not available... if the movie studios can put "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" on DVD (or even VHS), why can't they put this nice little play on plastic? What's the hold-up?
