5.0 out of 5 stars An under appreciated classic!, August 28, 2010
This review is from: Our Time (DVD)
I first discovered this film when CBS aired it in 1980 as "Death of Her Innocence" in prime time. I've always been a fan of Pamela Sue Martin, one of the most prettiest girls of the 1970s. At the time I already owned a VCR and I recorded it. I was awestruck by the cinematography and I loved the film score. So much, in fact, that I called Warner Bros in Burbank and asked if there was a soundtrack available. And so I watched the film repeatedly as a 19 year old that year. I could never get enough of it.

Thirty years later it has finally made its debut on DVD and even though as a DVD-R from Warner Bros Archives, I am still very pleased with the transfer and very happy to own it. The picture quality is superb.

This film hasn't gotten much airplay on television since 1980, not even presented on TCM. But if you're familiar with the TV broadcast version, you'll no doubt be shocked at the language that was cut from the film. I actually prefer the "G-rated" version but it's a likable story with great characters.

In watching the film after so many years I can't help but appreciate the late Debralee Scott's performance each and every time she has a moment on the screen. Someone deserves special credit for adding her to the cast.

Nora Heflin, most famous for her role in "Born Innocent" is among the featured girl students at Pendleton. Karen Balkin, from "The Children's Hour" is also one of the students featured.

The DVD is a bit pricey but you never know when it might go out of print and then you're hunting it down a few years later and paying triple for it. I would definitely recommend getting it.
