Wonderfully enlightening...Go Todd
3 October 1999 | by woody-73See all my reviews

I saw this short and it was wonderfully played. I enjoyed getting to know what really took place in the life of Todd Bridges, not the newspaper version. Great cast, wonderful direction, the writing was original big ups to Jimmy Bridges for the great story...Two Thumbs Up!!
