Thank you Cosby for doing this timeless work. I was born in 1973 and have Sickle Cell Anemia, this is the first time I am seeing this movie I don't live far from Norwalk where it was filmed. "A Warm December" (1973) with Sidney Poitier, is the only other movie I know of that Sickle Cell Anemia plays a role in the story. I wonder why it takes so long for our black actors to take up this subject that still affects our communities?

Originally telecast February 25, 1972, To All My Friends on Shore stars Bill Cosby as a middle-aged airport redcap named Blue. Frustrated by his job and his ghetto existence, Blue (played by Cosby) vows to seek out a better life for himself and his loved ones. But his stubborn efforts to do so succeed only in turning his family against him. Already burdened with enough problems, Blue must face a new crisis when his son is discovered to have Sickle Cell Anemia. Filmed on location in Norwalk, Connecticut, To All My Friends on Shore not only starred Bill Cosby, but was produced, scored and written by him as well. Allan Sloane was honored with an Emmy for his adaptation of Cosby's original story.

2006 same story goes on...

I saw this made for TV movie just one time in 1971, when I was seven years old. I only knew Bill Cosby as a comic actor, and was stunned (yes, a seven year old can be stunned now and again) by his performance. I never got it out of my head. Last year I found this heart wrenching film, and discovered it was the same movie I saw in my youth. I was again amazed at how powerful it was/is. Now being a father myself, it's message is even more meaningful. Take a chance, get this movie and share it someone you love. It will definitely move you to tears.
