NO PLACE TO RUN 1972 SCOTT JACOBY ADOPTED TEENAGE RUNAWAY WITH GRANDPA TV MOVIE OF THE WEEK DVD-R!

Sale!

$11.99

An adopted boy’s parents are killed, and to keep him from returning to the state’s custody, he and his grandfather run away.

As schmaltzy as it might seem today, this “Movie of the Week” was a real tear-jerker, about a young boy (very well played by Scott Jacoby) and his renegade grandfather (the incomparable Herschel Bernardi), running away to Canada (close parallels there to the extant Vietnam War), in order to escape parental authority.

The theme song (by the talented, now veteran songwriter, Paul Williams) still rings in my head: “Leave us alone, we live in the country…etc.” Get out the hankies, prepare to cry.
