Fantastic movie from the 70's, the original!
on July 10, 2012
No, it is not the new version, that one comes out in August 2012 from what I just read in 30 seconds, and this one says release year 1972.
This one is an excellent movie, right down to the real reason we had such movies, to impress upon our youth the morals and life lessons that would serve them as they grow up (and tone down their bratty-ness while we tried to raise them ;). Wholesome viewing seems to be (greedily) replaced by so much, whatever is selling, such as; reality shows, snapping bones, all sorts of violence, as well Special FX and zero-heroes to replace a well done script. This is one example of what was good - watching a story unfold and feeling the connection that all kids (and even adults) have, and the ability to relate to, and appreciate; the values of right and wrong, and of course; wisdom.
