Well, if one wanted to be cute about it, it can also be found here, and here, and, if you look real hard, here.

For those who had the misfortune to watch the ABC version, and havenít seen the original, this would be a good opportunity to find out why the remake was a waste of time and money.

But thatís JMO. I could be wrong, and frequently am.

The original is indeed a classic movie and should not be missed. (also this version has clearer and sharper colors than the dvd version if I read it right.

In this instance, you sir are most definitely not wrong.

It's a classic. Movies like this aren't made anymore..
