Viewing Notes

This version was the super long movie directed by Harry Harris produced for television in the mid-eighties, one that apparently Micah (@reeldistraction) watched over and over as a child. It was broadcast in two 1.5 hour parts but the DVD provides both so it can be viewed as one continuous film (3 hours!). This might be one of the best versions I’ve seen mainly due to all the talent involved and the length to really tell the story.

It’s quite amusing to see another “star” show up for the next sequence. Here’s a list of just a few of the actors involved: Red Buttons, Sherman Hemsley, Shelley Winters, Scott Baio, Sammy Davis Jr, Telly Savalas, Roddy McDowall, and Ringo Starr (just to name a few).
