Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 56 ratings.
Recently, I DVRed this film on the FOX Movie Channel, and I had quite forgotten how much I missed seeing it (the last time that I DID watch it on television was, I believe, about thirty-five years ago[!]). Now, at least, I can "kinda, sorta" understand the symbolism and metaphor(s) used in this truly forgotten gem of a movie.
Who'd have thought that it was made to rival "The Wizard of Oz" that came out the preceding year!
