Great Movie
1 September 2006 | by bobbi-babcockSee all my reviews

I absolutely love this movie! Glynnis O'Connor's performance was spectacular. And the story is at once inspiring and heartbreaking. I saw it in 1978 and it has stuck with me for all these years. Unfortunately, I've been unable to locate a DVD or video, nor have I seen it replayed on television. I have seen a documentary in which friends and family of Little Mo refer to the movie. Everyone seems pleased with both the content, and the performances.

Please, someone tell me how I can find a copy of this movie to share with my daughter?

Thank you, Bobbi
