    Have not seen this movie in probably more than 35 years. Would love to see it aired again someday…hopefully sometime during the 2015 holiday season?

      Here it is, 2018,& it’s only been shown in the Seattle area once,in about 10 or more years…it’s just been so long! It’s a wonderful movie,& I love it, just like Christmas at Maxwells,but because it’s somewhat dramatic,& not a “rom-com” the majority of tv stations don’t show it,nor others like them,except for years at a time. I’m done waiting on the generosity of mainstream media, I’m buying the hard copies of whatever I can. Have a spectacular Christmas,all!
