Okay, the down side: this DVD is - expectedly - cheaply produced. BUT, there is not even a MENU. C'mon! I produce low-budget DVDs with a FRACTION of the capital of this company, and my DVD production blows this away. ... So, what you end up with is a film that plays in an endless loop with no chapters. Yes. Not fun. The only way to enjoy it is to commit to watching it. Thankfully, you can pause to take breaks. So... there are your "special features" in a nutshell...
The cast has no control over the DVD production, so I felt it important to rate on the content of the film. I'm a big fan of the late, very great, Bill Bixby. I imagine most who order this film will fall into the same category. If so, you'll love his character and interpretation. Bixby is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated actors of the late 20th century. He was bestowed with more charisma, sensitivity, and depth than most actors of any generation. I can't find anyone who comes close in all three of these categories in this era. Thankfully, there is a market for these DVDs.
Lighthearted TV movie of the week goes by all too fast (clocking in at 73 minutes) and only superficially touches on an important subject. Bill Bixby is very likable (as always) and despite all the short cuts the film is quite enjoyable. Just don't expect too much.
One thing though. The DVD is not very good with heavy grain throughout and not even chapter stops. It's acceptable...just.
