    This is one of the best made for TV movies ever. It's a very sad drama with a great, unique story and I loved it. I highly recommend it.

    Good movie. Interesting story plot. One of my favorite movies from John Travolta.

    Touching story, when John Travolta was still a boy. We watched this on TV and were fascinated by it. In 1976, it seemed so hi-tech.

    This is the original, serious movie. Not that crap one that came out later.
