| Exceptional Movie
Drop Out Father was not only an outstanding movie, it had a profound effect on our lives as young parents. We were so impressed by the decision that the middle-aged father made that we made one very much like his and have never regretted it. We watched the movie on t.v. and hoped it would be shown again. We never saw it and checked many times to see if it was going to be shown. We can't get a copy of the video, and feel that it should be made available for purchase. Not only that, it should be shown on t.v. I think that Americans are ready for this one now more than ever. Dick Van Dyke does an excellent job and is to be commended for it.
