Since it's on IMDb, I suppose you're wondering where to find a print of the film itself.

My favorite sources are through eBay and iOffer. And on Ebay you can save the search in case someone posts it later. And/or you can try to find sellers who offer old titles there, and contact them. On iOffer you can post a Want Ad. (I've never tried that.)

I haven't tried any of those sites that claim to stream almost every film, but want your email before you can see what they're offering. Nor have I tried the family of sites that has very bad consumer feedback, but seems to ship some titles they claim to have; they just tend to ignore customer inquiries, even when you give them $$ and get nothing in return.

I'm not finding your title anywhere at the moment.

You might want to try tracking down the 1 person who posted a review in 2003. I see some possibilities when I search for that user.

The person who posted that old review has a film blog here:  http://sprocketedsources.blogspot.com , but I don't see a link to make direct contact with him.

I found an old yahoo email for him and sent him a message, but I don't know if he will respond.

The reviewer lives in Sydney, Australia and is active in film societies there and is a filmmaker himself, though probably retired.  He responded to the email, saying "There is a battered Sixteen millimetre print kicking about here. I presume Gladys McConnell is the young teacher. If her grand daughter were to show up in Sydney Australia I imagine we could arrange a screening. Does she have any memorabilia? Photos, press books?"

I will write him back saying that she was a supporting character named Sally.   If you send me your email address at hivolbill (at) gmail.com I will send his email address to you.

As an aside, that movie also made the rounds on television under the title "Give to the World."

Do you know how to go about having IMDb set back up the private message system?
