| Great feel good movie...
This is a heart-breaker for sure! It has special meaning for me since I ran against the Duke City Dashers in my teenage years many moons ago! It's all about real life and how one person can certainly make a huge difference. Of course, the movie doesn't contain all the extravagance of today's movies, it was made in the 1970's!! If you can actually slow the movie at 1000 speed, you can see me in one of the scenes. Yeah for my .0015 seconds of stardom! I truly love this movie and do wish it was out on DVD. It's a very old movie, but John Baker made quite an impact on many young girls lives who are now all grown women and truly have a soft spot for his incredible spirit! For myself, I will treasure this one for sure!
