| And Your Name Is Jonah
I saw this movie in the 70's and I was but a child then and remember this movie almost word for word, scene by scene. That is how much this movie truly touched my heart. I am looking for a copy of this movie and ask that anyone with information on where I can find one please e-mail me. I fear this movie has been shelved for life and that would be such a waste. I have an 11 year old son and wish very much for him to view this masterpiece of a movie. I feel a movie like this can teach him a lot in terms of life and how to be thankful for all the haves rather than the have no ts. This movie should be shown in every classroom, in every school around the world.

Sincerely, Maria Horton
