    I know its been a while But I wondered if I could get one of the copies of this movie.

    There are 3 copies out there and I don't know where they are.

    I don't just want to see the movie, I NEED to see the movie.

    Anybody know where they are?

    Well I would contact one of the owners but they are ME. All 3 copies are
    mine but ,well I've been away a while so I was hoping to track them down without searching threads. Just lazy I guess.

    I saw this movie on broadcast tv about 30 years ago. I seem to remember Henry Fonda had a barberchair. Am I correct?

    they were going around like hot cakes

    Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle, sorry.

    I had one of the copies but can't remember who it went to. I hope the guys are kind enough to give 'em back, thanks for letting us use them.:cheers:

    Sorry dude... I got one of them at the beginning of this year... watched it and forwarded it along. I don't remember who was next on the list. :confused:

    Someone will pop up with one of them. I appreciated you sending them out. I'll see what I can dig up in the archives too...

    It is also a book. The book is a lot different from the movie. The story takes place on the Siuslaw River, but the author has moved the nearby towns around a bit. I think parts of the movie were filmed in Oregon. They still move a few log rafts on the Siulslaw. Or did a few years ago. The logs are dumped off trucks though.

    Hey, it turns out that I have one of the VHS copies. I thought it was 2000ssm6's, but he said it was one of yours. Its been around the horn out here in the PNW to several people on AS. Someone sent it back to me a while back.
