        Thank you for quick delivery.

        Unusual that the remaster did not shorten the black screen where TV corporations would have inserted commercials.

        Brought back memories of family gatherings at my parents' home.

          I first saw this film when I was about 18 years old, and it stayed with me all the years after. I never forgot this touching story of family and what it really means to forgive. I purchased this copy for a Christmas gift for a friend who like me appreciates the TV movies of the 70's and 80's. The cast is stellar, and if you don't use a box of tissues, you might want to have your heart checked!!! A film you can never forget!

            Comments about Gathering, The (2 Disc Special Edition) (MOD):

            Glad I also have this holiday movie at last!

            I was only 15 years old when ABC first aired "The Gathering" in December 1977; I remembered reading an article about the film in the Detroit News and that spurred me into checking out this TV movie.

            The performances were nothing short of excellent!

            Edward Asner and Maureen Stapleton certainly had great chemistry together, and it was also interesting to see such future stars as Veronica Hamel and Gregory Harrison in one of their earlier roles (Rebecca Balding, who played Julie Thornton, was working concurrently with Asner on his series "Lou Grant").

            It's not hard to see why "The Gathering" won the Emmy Award for the Best Dramatic Special of 1977. It *was* somewhat surprising to discover Hanna-Barbera produced this film (as well as Part II), but they quickly became adept at producing quality films like this one for older audiences along with their cartoons and live-action shows for youngsters. (Now I'm curious to see what H-B's take on "Belle Starr" with Elizabeth Montgomery is like; I *never* saw "Belle Starr" when CBS first aired it in 1980.)

            All in all, both "Gathering" films bought back many great memories of my "wonder years" (the *only* debit: "The Gathering, Part II" *could* - and *should* - have also been digitally remestered!). Before, I had a VHS tape I recorded off TV - I couldn't even locate a commercially produced copy of "The Gathering" on VHS after said tape I recorded from TV broke - but now that problem has been *permanently* rectified. And, to be sure, I'll be watching both "Gathering" films again next Christmas season!

                    I use it at home.
                    I loved the storyline.
                    Can't think of anything I don't like, that is why I ordered it.
