I SAW THIS MOVIE MANY YEARS AGO, WHEN MY CHILDREN WERE YOUNG, AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT! I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR IT QUITE A LONG TIME AND JUST CAME ACROSS IT HERE AT ALPHA! MY SEARCH IS ENDED. I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO VIEWING IT WITH MY CHILDREN WHO ARE NOW GROWN, I KNOW THEY WILL BE AS THRILLED AS I AM ABOUT SEEING IT AGAIN, AND KEEPING IT IN OUR "OLDIES" LIBRARY. ALPHA VIDEO IS TRUE TO THEIR NAME IN PROVIDING OBSCURE AND HARD TO FIND TITLES. I WILL REMAIN A CONSTANT CUSTOMER. THANK YOU ALPHA! WELL DONE!
