This is a movie that will help you to look at things that are happening around good and bad in a different light.
Anna Vukovic
Blockbuster,etc.,but now has apparently been removed and no longer has any distributor to even be able to order a copy for purchase anywhere.
Shawn Morse
With all my heart and soul, Shirley MacLaine, I love what you have done to help those of us who are searching for our spirituality!

I saw this on TV years ago, and it really inspired me. Just the possibility opens your soul to all the trials and tribulations and gives you a positve outlook. I've been trying to purchase this movie since the beginning of VHS. BRING IT BACK!

I have had several special encounters with this enlightening film,since first seeing it during its original mini-series broadcast on TV years ago!It seems to periodically come up in consciousness to me,when I am sharing with others,my Spiritual journey,as they too become aware of a greater potential for their own lives!It has been over the years available at most larger video rental stores,ie.Blockbuster,etc.,but now has apparently been removed and no longer has any distributor to even be able to order a copy for purchase anywhere.It is very sad that a film with such consciousness raising and healing qualities to it would just disappear.I am hoping someone may be able to help me to acquire an audio-visually decent copy,so that it may continue to bless and inspire people,as it has done for all who have seen it in the past!Just for myself,I know what it has done for me,everytime I've watched it with whatever "new" person,I've recommended it to.It is the only movie that I have ever written notes from as I watched it,just from the nuggets shared between the characters in the dialogue!I'm so glad that I am not alone in the enthusiastic pull to get this film re-released,re-distributed and available once again to the general public!I don't know what we'd all have to do,short of writing a petition of sorts to Ms.MacLaine herself as a vote of confidence in this timeless piece of work but I feel that it is far too important a film to simply be satisfied in being just one of the many who remembers this uplifting movie with fond warmth and affection.If anyone would like to help those of us searching for a copy of "Out on a Limb" so that we may continue to share it for the "soul" benefit of all the others who haven't seen it yet,P>"If you want to get to the fruit of the tree,sometimes you've got to be willing to go "Out on a Limb"!"

I've had OUT ON A LIMB on video tape since the original showing in 1987. Tonight for some reason I pulled it out to watch after an absence of at least 10 years (I have hundreds of video tapes so it was easy for this to recede into the darker corner of the closet).

I am most amazed at Shirley's incredible courage (others might call it arrogance or gall) to present material that is so antagonistic to the mainstream middle American mind set. After watching this excellent time capsule of New Age Thought from the mid 1980's, I felt a wee bit sad, since I realize this mini-series could never be shown on network TV today! After decades of Republican rule and the subtle but merciless pressure of right wing Christian religion in the US, the beliefs that Shirley presented in this film are much MORE controversial today than they were back in the benignn 1980's. How dare she have an affair with a married man? How dare she claim to be God? How dare she hobnob with channelers who are in the hands of Satan? I can hear all the babble on TV and right wing talk radio if that poor woman were to try this today!

Even if every concept presented in this film is false, it is a tremendously rewarding adventure.

However, I do have to state that after this film was made, Shirley admitted on a talk show that the book/film are NOT literally true! She created composite characters like David to represent her spiritual research. So it might come down to her NOT having any personal metaphysical adventures at all outside the confines of her book reading, but she created such adventures, e.g., having an invisible alien drive a truck in Peru that she and the make-believe David were in, to jazz up the topic a bit.

This story is "ahead" of it's time, the movie should be re-released on DVD. The images and colors can be missed on video. DVD could provide the opportunity for true reflection & meditation. PLEASE release this movie on DVD.

Fantastic mini-series. Would love to get a copy. Great intoduction to spirituality and Shirley MacLaine certainly does go "out on a limb" with this one. These times demand that this movie goes back in print!!!

It is such a treat to see trance channeling treated with respect and honesty. I loved this movie, which accurately followed the book and the journey of this remarkable woman. What quester can't identify with the loss of loved ones in a spirit-phobic society? It is honest and fearless in presenting the challenges of taking the path less traveled. And also, it is filled with light and love. Please bring this movie back so I can purchase it!

This movie started me on a spiritual path that is still providing happiness today!! After watching just one part of the miniseries, I went out and bought every book by Shirley MacLaine and devoured them... then had to painfully wait for her to write some more!! It's too bad it has not been released on DVD yet, I would have bought it!!
