A Great Family Movie, but what has happened to it?
21 November 2003 | by dberrymanal1See all my reviews

This was my favorite movie when I was a kid. But I have not seen it on TV since the late sixties. It is not even listed in most move reference books. Can any one tell me why it is not being shown? And is there any way I can get it on video? You would think with that "surviver" series such at hit,video companies would be turning every movie ever made about people stranded on a deserted island. Please some one tell where this movie is and where I can get it. Thank you.
