| Does Anyone Know Where I Can Get A Copy of This Movie?
I remember anxiously awaiting the making of this movie when it was advertised in 1971. I read the book first as it was on the Freshman required reading list at the state university I attended. The book was written by Ann Head and dedicated to her teenage daughters and it really contained a great story. Condensing it down for a "made for TV" movie did not make for a great script. Please remember that this was in the middle of the sexual revolution that began in the 1960's and TV was just beginning to tackle sensitive social issues such as premarital sex and teenage pregnancy. These issues have been around since the beginning of time but no one ever talked about them. The old mentality of "out of sight-out of mind" was very prevalent in those days. If we did not talk about it, it was as if it didn't exist. As with anything in the beginning, most things do improve with time. When this movie is viewed not so much for it's content, but what it represents and that is the beginning of society's ability to address any and all issues, particularly moral ones openly and honestly, it really is a sweet movie. I would advise anyone to be sure and read the book either before or after viewing the movie to really get an idea of what the author intended when she wrote the book. I would dearly love to see this movie again and if anyone knows where I can obtain a copy, please let me know.
