Remembering my childhood
9 August 2017 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

The Cay was one's most important movie in my childhood,l was fourteen years old when l'd watched this picture together with my grandfather in 1976 and has a special meaning to me...firstly because l was a teenager and it was made for this audience,l've looking for this movie a long time without success but now l found it on Youtube even no subtitles with original audio it was worth to see for the second time after 41 years of waiting,l didn't notice that it was so short...seeing James Earl Jones as Timothy in a fantastic performance,hope someday this picture came out on DVD..who knows!!!

Resume:

First watch: 1976 / How many: 2 / Source: TV-Youtube / Rating: 7.5
