Foolish buy


Well, I thought I had hit paydirt with a site that claimed to have this title on DVD so I ordered it. $10 plus 2.50 S&H but a waste of money. It was recorded off televsion and had the commercials but they were half-way edited.
I'm not listing the company's name since I have complained and hope I can get my money back.

If not, then I might warn others to beware.

Actually, the copy I made for myself on disc from the VHS tape I recorded off TV many years ago, is a better copy. I guess I should have known better.

i sure would like to see the movie again. have you seen any updates on availability? my recollection is that it was a nbc movie. for some reason the movie has stuck in my mind all these years. today i am living in the past so it came roaring back!


thanks,oj

I loved this movie and have never forgotten it after all these years. I check periodically to see if it's available on DVD. It was an NBC movie - it aired at least twice. I have blocked out most of the '70s but this movie is so vivid to me.

I believe you're right about it being originally on NBC. I can check my VHS copy since I recorded it off air and may have either started taping early that would show me a clue, or at the closing.

Could you make me a copy of your copy, I still can't find one anywhere,Please let me know, [email protected]

John, I just now found your message. I don't know if I can make a copy or not but I can try. I think I still have the VHS copy if I can't do it from the disc.

Sorry to be so long in getting back to you. I discovered my DVD-VCR recorder combo has quit working. This is he second Samsung unit I've purchased. Nest time I will choose a different brand.

Hi, Lightkeeper-1, would it help to get a copy if you had a good working VHS player (or two?) or can you dub to DVD? Might be glad to send you a player if it would help to get a copy. Don't suppose you could part with the original for a quick dub and return? I'm sure we could work something out to ensure that you get the original tape back, e.g. PayPal escrow). Can you send me something at [email protected]?

Thanks, Tom (John's brother).

Hi, Tom again - also, if you're worried about getting your $12.50 back, could we send you the $12.50 in exchange for info on the disc company?

Thanks, Tom
