it is still great and sorta available
sammy going south (AKA a boy ten feet tall) is a great, unsung coming of age film. i saw this film twice as a boy at the movies in the mid-1960's and was captivated by it, spellbound, really. very moving with great action and performances (bless you edward g.) i watched it two weeks ago and it is better than i remembered it! it is on dvd in the uk, and available on file-sharing sites (aaargh!) it needs to be released in north america on dvd. ASAP.
Where Can I Get a Copy of this Film???
- Waldo Katz
I saw this movie when I was younger in the theatre. It was so intensified and Edward G. Robinson did a great starring role. Five Stars !!!!
We need movies like this
I also saw this movie when I was younger. I have had my eye out for it ever since.
PLAY IT AGAIN.., SAMMY
I saw this movie on TV in the late 1960s, when I must of been around the same age as Sammy. This movie helped form and instill in me a great sense of adventure and desire to travel which I have been able to do in my adult life. I would love to see this movie again as it has made a great impression in my memory.
Anything is Possible
- Chris Coccaro
After seeing this film as a young boy when originally released in the US, I felt immediately empowered as if there was no trial which I could not summon the will and wherewithal to surmount. Such was the ability of this film to allow the audience to empathize with young Sammy. The strength of character and moral fiber which grows in this young protagonist is vividly illustrated. I have long sought films and books that could impart such a lesson to my own children, and haven't come up with anything yet that might affect them as deeply as this film did me. I admit that I have not seen the film in 40 years and that perhaps adult eyes may not see things this young mind did but would like to consider the converse as eagerly. I'd love to see this film rediscovered. By the way, the double feature that day 40+ years ago was "Crack In The World." That film can stay in the vault.
One of Edward G.'s Finest
- John Boccardi
This captivating film is presents an unbelievable profile in courage of a boy who dealt with more than any man should have to face. It needs to be rediscovered, redistributed, and enjoyed be a whole new audience.
Outstanding film of courage
This film needs to be rediscovered. A true gem of a film. Fergus McClelland and Edward G. Robinson are the whole film. Unforgettable performances and outstanding Direction and photography and music.
