| dropout father is gr8
I watched this film years ago and I loved it, I have recently tried to buy and i cannot find it anywhere. I would love to watch Dick Van Dyke being his usual hilarious self. bring back classics instead of repeating modern rubbish all the time. I would gladly pay money to purchase this film, why is it Mary Poppins is shown every Christmas yet his better movies such as dropout father was shown once in the past twenty years. Dick Van Dyke is a marvellous actor who deserves his work to be shown and bought. after checking amazon and ebay I found that there was no way I would be able to but drop out father. please feel free to e-mail me if u know where I can get it on DVD.
