        Such a cute little movie, it was directed by the father of an acquaintance of mine, and features Hall of Famer Johnny Unitas!

        If you just can't wait its available:

          Well, it's nice to see that SOMEBODY recognizes that there's a market hungry for Disney's classic live action films, even if it isn't Disney.

          Any TV exposure of the classics is good, I think.
