I have read from other comments that it was viewed as a afternoon school special in 1979. But I recall that it was shown on prime time the year before. One of those movie of the week things. I had kept, for almost 10 years, the t.v. guide clipping of the film so I know the year of the original release was 1978. On the clipping, Michael's age was written down as 19, not 17. I don't know if that was a T.V. guide error or if it was the original age his character was suppose to be and they later changed it because the age difference was larger. Sadly, the clipping is long gone, having been discarded a few years after college when I cleared my stuff from my parents place.
Watching the film again brought me back to the end of eight grade when I first saw it. Being the same age as Jesse in the movie, I was just months away from turning 14. Unlike the movies, I wasn't lucky enough to get a gorgeous, rock star, boyfriend, but it was and still is fun to see how Jesse got hers. It's a rare film that lasts through the years and changing times and still packs an emotional wallop. The message remains the same. Your first love, will always be the sweetest, most fondly remembered moment.
I just ordered the DVD of the movie, as well as the three books (Sooner or Later, Waiting Games, Now or Never) since I only discovered they are now available.Read more ›
When I saw this movie it made me remember how special your first love is. It was if I were 13 again and had my first kiss. I tried for years to get a copy of the movie and never caught it again on tv. My son, explained to me in this day and age of computers it was very easy. I got it in the mail last night and even at 49 years old, I watched it and felt all thoes feelings all over again. Who said it's corny? It is touching, sweet and in these days of sex and violence I love the sweet emotional recall of my young adult times. Rex and Denise were so good together. It truly is my favorite.
It is not a good thing to live in the past but thank you Rex for letting a old lady visit it for an hour and a half(ok, I admit I watched it twice). It brought back all my Jr. High days and made me smile and cry. "You Take My Breath Away", was great. I would give it 10 stars and a "sweet" not "corny" rating. Constance
