An eye opener
3 January 2009 | by BrockySee all my reviews

I'll never forget the night I went to the theater to watch it, once it was released in this country back in the late 1970's. I was living in a small community and remember that I felt like wearing a wig and dark sunglasses, in case I should meet somebody I knew. Well I didn't. I went with great anticipation that was met fully. It opened my eyes and prepared my mind to what a wonderful life that lay ahead of me. I was not to be disappointed. The movie is wonderful. My wish for the future is that it will run in the theaters again, as it has a story and a message to tell to people today, as it will have in the future. My wish is also that it will be released on DVD - soon.
