"I first received the film TILT on VHS on my 14th birthday, and I loved it ever since. When my VHS copy broke, I wanted the movie to be on DVD. But then I found Sunshine Vintage Movies, and I purchased TILT on DVD. Thank you very much."

"I have been looking for a copy of "Sunshine" since I was a teenager. I saw the movie first on tv when I was about 4-5 and even at that young age, i remember how it made me feel. Growing up I had the book (which I read so much it was in tatters and finally bit the dust), and also the record album with all of John Denvers songs (full length) and excerpts of the main characters dialogue in the movie. After my book fell apart and I lost the album in storage I was so very sad!! After years of searching my daughter found me the book, and I have reread it multiple times. And to finally be able to find you all and the most memorable movie (next to The wizard of Oz) of all time, is a miracle and from the bottom of my heart I want to thank you!!! I will be recommending and coming back a sap!! BTW, I ordered sunshine and sunshine Christmas and they are just as I remember them and the lower quality did not bother me a bit!!! Your company is really a godsend to deal with. Thank You!"

"I just watched "A Girl Named Sooner" 1975. I was an extra during the filming and have been trying to find a copy for years. Thank you for finding it for me. The movie was fun to watch and the copy was good, except for just a couple of minor glitches. It brought back fond memories and was worth every dime. Thanks again and keep up the good work."

"Hi guys, Got your video yesterday (Jan Michael Vincent, Sandcastles) I had hoped it might have arrived for my birthday, but didn't quite make it. However, I was stoked to get it & of course, watched the whole thing thru last night. I have seen it before & loved it. My DVD ambition is to get all of Jan's movies, plus Michael Sarrazin, as well as other films as one offs from various artists. You said the quality may not be so good, well, okay, maybe not the best ever, but it was more than adequate. Will try your website again, films like Sandcastles are sooo hard to track down, but I know now where to come! May The Rare Movies Force Be With You. Regards, Suzi"

"I loved the movie "Sunshine" & "Sunshine Christmas" since the first time I saw them in the 70's & have them recorded on a VHS video tape. I'm also a huge fan of John Denver & love his music so when video machines were no longer compatible with new TV sets, I couldn't watch these movies anymore. The movies are about love, peace, life & death & combined with John Denver's music & the legacy that he left for us to enjoy, they're very poignant & touching. When I watch them, I laugh & cry & think how precious life is, no matter how long or short it is. Live each day, Carpe Diem."
"I just finished watching the movie Sunshine. Your company really came through for me - MUCH APPRECIATED! Consider me the "Come Back, kid!" Its rare to find a trusting seller of vintage videos. Taking into consideration that the movie was made in 1973, I found that the picture quality and sound were remarkable. I do recall the movie being somewhat longer, but the main purpose of the film came through with a charm. My compliments to your technical abilities at resurrecting such a movie classic as this one. Yes, you have earned my trust and I will be back. You have earned a grateful customer. Thanks - Rod"
I just finished watching the movies I purchased from your website. There were Great to watch again! I remember the movie Sunshine back when I was growing up. I could not believe that was Billy Mumy aka Danger Will Robinson! What a treat it was to watch. Also I never watch The Reincarnation of Peter Proud but enjoyed it. It was a great thriller movie. I really enjoyed Beauty and the Beast. I can still remember watching it when it was on back in the day. All movies played great and no imperfections at all. Thanks again"
"Hi, you were quite right! The Sunshine DVD's arrived, safe and sound, today. Thanks once again for your help! Best, Ray"
"I have wanted the film "Norwood" for years. I remembered it from the songs "Everything A Man Could Ever Need" and "Me And My Guitar". I saw it once on TV back in the '70s, but have never been able to find it on DVD. The recent sad death of Glen Campbell got me searching again, and miraculously you had it at Sunshine Vintage Movies. The DVD came very quickly and, despite our reservations, I would say it is excellent quality. Thank you so much for this film, I have really enjoyed watching it. Dealing with you was hassle free and a real pleasure. Maybe I'll find you have something else I've always wanted! Regards, best wwishes and many Thanks."
"This was one movie I just had to have in my movie collection, and it took me a long time to remember the name. The Promise is one of those movie greats that get overlooked. So, I was very disappointed to learn that it was not available on DVD. I figured that eventually it would come out on DVD. Every time I would order movies I would check to see if it was on DVD until I just figured it was not going to happen. For one reason or another a friend of mine was telling how his wife loved the movie which she could not find anywhere. So when I ordered movies again I decided to run the title in search and there it was. I figured for the cost it was worth a try. I have no regrets. The disc was clean and the sound quality for the time was right on the money. The picture quality was perfect as well bringing back the fact that it was only available on VHS. I was sitting on the sofa as if I was back in the eighties reminiscing enjoying the movie I had tried to find for over twenty years. Sunsine Vintagge Movies you have a new customer. Great job and great product. I would highly recommend you."
"Purchased the Beauty and the Beast DVD (1976) as a birthday gift for my sister; however, after having a heart attack last week and is now home for a month recuperating, gave the movie to her ahead of time so she could enjoy it now. Made her day! She is such a big Beauty and the Beast fan and this particular movie is rare and so hard to find. Thank You!"
"I got the George C. Scott dvd of Beauty and the Beast it was brilliant."
"Just received The Promise and The Reincarnation of Peter Proud. Thank you SO much! They sure don't make 'em like they used to!"
"Just viewed "The Christmas Tree" starring William Holden. It is a 1969 film that I first viewed on Television and which had a profound impact on me at the time. It is a very emotional film dealing with the passing of a young boy and prior to his death, his relationship with wolves. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the DVD given the age of the film. Keep up the good work Sunshine Vintage Movies."
"Was looking for an old favorite movie "The Egyptian". I was stunned to see how much it went for on elsewhere. Kept searching and found your site. Best price by far! Nice letter inside. I'm very pleased."
"Got the dvd of Beauty and The Beast, starring George C. Scott. Thank you, I will be giving my friend's your web address and I will be ordering again from you soon, thank you very much."
"Many years ago, in Dallas, Texas, I viewed a movie named "Norwood". It was a happy movie about a couple of Marines returning home and re-starting their civilian lives. I thought about it from time to time, but it was not available. Just recently I found that it was available through Sunshine Vintage Movies. For a modest price they provided the DVD containing "Norwood" and I viewed it and expect to watch it many more times. Thank you Sunshine, it may just be a movie to you all, but to me it is precious memories. I am 77 years old now. Best wishes..."
"I ordered 3 movies, Glory Glory, Living Proof (The Hank Williams Jr Story) and The Reincarnation of Peter Proud. Haven't seen these movies in many years and had been looking for them on DVD for several years. Then I was looking for Glory Glory on a google search and found the three and more. I received the movies in a short period of time after placing the order and the quality is great. Very Good Service!"
"Just wanted you to know that I received my Beauty and the Beast dvd today, thank you so much."
"I've been looking for this movie forever, and saw it for sale in here. I was nervous buying it, new to this this website. Got my movie the other day, and I really wasn't expecting it to look as good as it did. So glad I took the chance and bought Beauty and the Beast with George C Scott!"
"I looked for a long time for Beauty and the Beast with George C Scott....was thrilled to find and pleased with it...My husband has a tattoo of the blue rose.... I also got Bustter and Billie, had not seen it in a long time....enjoyed it also....would shop here again and tell others about you. Thanks for the memories"
""Crossings" was wonderful."
"When I was young I watched the movie Little Darlings. It was good and it is still beautiful. The movie is about camp and having fun. It's about young girl learning about the true value of love. It's a fun movie but also very serious subject matter and excellent acting in my opinion."
"The DVD of the 1976 Beauty and the Beast is Great!!! Thanks so much for bringing back my memories of this movie!!!"
"I ordered, Living Proof, for an elderly friend who had been looking for it for years. He was thrilled when it came in the mail. He watched it over and over. He says he's well pleased, and can't say enough about how glad he is to finally have it on hand. I was impressed with the availability and packaging. I enjoyed the letter inside. Thank you very much for making his day!"
"Very happy with recent order Glory! Glory! we had some friends over to watch it was in good humor."

"Not one for fairy tales, I absolutely LOVED George C. Scott and Trish van Devere's version of Beauty and the Beast (1976) and have wanted a DVD of it for a long time. I found it here, and was not one bit disappointed with my purchase. The quality of the DVD was not lacking in any manner, and I thoroughly enjoyed the story as much as the first time I saw it. Thank you."
"I want to thank you so much! I got to share with my family a movie I used to watch with my father! Sunshine!!! My family enjoyed the movies!! It brought some awesome memories of me and my father as he passed away in 2013!! I can't express enough thank you."
"I have loved the movie 'Sunshine' since I first saw it many, many years ago. Such a beautiful story, movingly told and the wonderful songs of John Denver. I have tried to get the DVD without any luck for years and had resorted to watching it in 10-minute sessions on YouTube. I saw there was a 'Sunshine Christmas' movie also but the YouTube version had such poor sound it wasn't worth watching. Then I found your website and in spite of serious reservations about your validity, and would the DVD be able to be played in my region (UK), I was so desperate to get the movies I thought it was worth the risk as the price was pretty reasonable. Well, I got both movies and have watched them. They played perfectly in the UK and although, as you said, the quality is not as good as today's quality, I thought it was pretty good and it was an absolute joy to be able to watch it properly again and also see the Christmas DVD. So, thank you Sunshine movies for doing what you do and providing us with rare DVD's that are so hard to get. Your service was excellent and I appreciate how you kept me updated with delivery etc. highly recommended!!"
"Wow! I just watched your copy of George C. Scott's Beauty and the Beast. It was wonderful. I have wanted to see it again for 40 years. Thank you so much."
"I had been searching for the Danielle Steel movie, The Promise and I could not get it anywhere. I came across this site by accident and I am so glad I found it. I had only ever seen this movie once, when it first came out. I have most of Danielle Steel movies and the best thing about this one, is how closely it follows the book. I really would recommend Sunshine Vintage Movies and if I am ever looking for an older movie, that may be hard to source then I know that Sunshine Vintage Movies, will be the first website I will visit."
"I just wanted to send a special thank you!! I have been searching everywhere for the movie Sandcastles and this morning your web page was there, so thought I would check it out. It was easy to find and affordable. This is a wedding anniversary gift for my husband (33 Years!!) It will be a real surprise for him, since he was also looking and found nothing. THANKS FOR THE SPECIAL MEMORY!!"
"Bought the Buster and Billie movie, which I remembered and loved. I was glad to find it here at Sunshine Video for such a reasonable price. The movie played great and I now have it in my video library."

"I'll trade today's so-called 'quality' for the QUALITY we knew any time. I've come to the right place. Keep'em coming as is. I saw SOME of the cool bands; and I remember when American garbage cans didn't easily go sailing. BILL GIBBS, a very serious student of EARTHLINGNESS"
"My old copy of "The Promise" was on VHS and had been recorded off of television. Commercial breaks, language bleeped out and plain ol' age made this copy a rough one to view. I have been looking for a DVD copy of this movie ever since without any success...until now. I ordered the DVD through Sunshine Vintage Movies and am thrilled to say that I have watched the movie and it is perfect. Thank you Sunshine Vintage Movies!!!"
"My dad and I watched Sunshine and Sunshine Christmas when I was a little girl. I always associated the movie and the song "Sunshine on My Shoulder" with my dad. He recently went to heaven and my little sister and I planned his funeral. I had Sunshine on My Shoulder played at the funeral. My growing up with my dad was much different from my little sisters to say the least. Life was very colorful. My sister has asked me to tell her all about it..lol. I ordered copies of the films for both my sister and I. Was also pleased to see that you also have the Promise which my mother and I watched together and loved as well as The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia...you see, that film was filmed at a road house that I spent every friday night at with my dad when I was very small..singing with the band. Big D Brown owned that place and was my buddy. My dad told me that he was in the film at some point and I am anxious to see that. Thanks for the colorful memories!"
"I really enjoyed watching Sunshine and Sunshine Christmas, which I purchased from You. Thank you for enabling me to enjoy a bit of nostalgia, remembering all to well the feelings and dramatic ups and downs teenagers experience."
"I bought sunshine and a sunshine Christmas my wife and daughter loved them too thanks"
"Finally I laid hands on DVDs of "Sunshine" & "A Sunshine Christmas". While in no way the quality we're used to...they were watchable & listenable. Lived that life back in the day & even tho "Hollywooded"/they didn't miss the mark by much..."
"I want to let you know that I received the DVD of "The Promise" yesterday and watched it all the way through last night. I appreciate the way you handled everything and would not hesitate to do business with you in the future. Thank you again."
"My Sunshine and Sunshine Christmas is very excellent. Thanks for bringing me back to 1970s."

"My husband ordered the Tammy Wynette movie Stand By Your Man for me. I am happy to have it, the sound is good and picture quality is good. Thank you Sunshine Vintage Movies, I look forward to ordering from your company again."
"I recently sent for a TV movie I'd been searching for about forever. The Hallmark Beauty and the Beast with George C. Scott and Trish Van Devere. I remembered it all these years as being special and like thousands of others in search of this picture (it wasn't released for some reason) wanted so much to see it again. And here it was. I am thrilled to discover, not only is it as good as I recalled (and the quality is excellent considering the age of this program), but it is now mine. Thanks to this website!"
"Thank you so much for send me the "Dottie West Story" with Michele Lee. It was hard to find but now I've got it. Is a great movie about Dottie West, the quality is great and now I can show it every time. My greatest movie ever is "Coal Miner's Daughter" and I'm the greatest Loretta Lynn fan in Germany for over 30 years. I have a large LL collection and saw her for 3 times. It was not easy for a German Country Girl."
"I almost didn't buy from this site but I am really happy I did now! I couldn't find the movie 'Tilt' anywhere on dvd. The movie plays great! Great price! The shipping only took about a week to get to me. If there is another movie I'm looking for and this site has it, I will buy from this site again. THANK YOU!"
"Hello, I received the film The Promise, and it was fantastic. I am a big fan of Danielle Steel's movies. Thank you for your help. You have been fantastic."
"The movie Norwood DVD arrived safe and sound. Thank you !"
"I was so excited to see you have a movie that I have been searching for for years. The movie is "Norwood" with Glen Campbell and Kim Darby. I remember watching this movie when I was 11 years old and just loved it. I'm a big Glen Campbell fan and since his family has made it public that he is stricken with Alzheimer's, my search became even greater. I couldn't even find it anywhere. Thank you so much for making this available, and for bringing back great memories!
I would also like to say that the quality of the movie on DVD was excellent considering its age. I don't think it could have been any better. I will definitely come back to Sunshine Vintage Movies for my next hard to find.
Thank you again for this treasure and God bless.."
"I just received Sunshine and Buster and Billie am so happy to finally get these movies as I only had the album of Sunshine and it was my favorite movie. Sunshine Vintage Movies was such a BLESSING TO ME. I will be ordering more movies when I can. May God Bless You for having these movies."
"I wanted to follow up. I had tried the DVD The Egyptian on my DVD Player and it didn't work. I took your suggestion and tried it on a second DVD Player and voila the DVD played great! I learned to my dismay that the first DVD Player was no longer working. Thanks for standing by your product, I will keep you in mind for future purchases."
"I am extremely happy with the quality of the movie I ordered, "The Reincarnation of Peter Proud". This movie has a haunting tale and I am grateful to have a copy of the 1975 movie that, as a teenager, affected me in not only the writing but the production and period actors, too. It was a high school English class lesson. Well written by Max Ehrlich. (The film was mirrored closely with the book). I was skeptical about how the quality would be, and, although not "perfect", the quality really made my day. Thank you Sunshine Vintage Movies. Yes, I would give my recommendation to others who need/want to find that long lost film that's followed you since childhood. Well done."
"I loooved seeing "Beauty and the Beast w/ George C. Scott." It was my first time seeing it, and I am glad that we bought it. Thank You, Michelle"
"I have been searching for The Earthling for years. Glad I found it! Quality was very good, especially considering the age of the movie- will order from you guys again!"
"I ordered 2 dvds of "The night the lights went out in Georgia", one for my Mom & Sister, they have looked for this movie for a long time. They both said they enjoyed them very much. They were in excellent shape, the picture was great. No problem with either one I am so glad I found them here for them. An oldie but goodie. Thanks"
"We received our copy of The Earthling which is one of our favorite movies. We have the VHS copy but have been searching for the DVD copy for many years. Thanks to you we can now enjoy this movie for many years to come. Again Thank You."
"Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I have searched since 1980 for 'The Promise' and I was so delighted to find it through your Vintage Movies! The movie was everything I had hoped I remembered it would be! Thanks so much for all your efforts."
"Thank you so much for my recent order of the Hallmark TV movie Beauty and the Beast with George C. Scott and Trish Van Devere. This movie my son found on your web site recently and ordered it for me. I was so excited because I had been searching for it for about 20 years. I viewed and the quality is very good. This movie is a gift for my wife for her birthday. Thanks again so very much."
"I received the 2 DVD Sunshine set in the mail yesterday and I'm very happy with my purchase thank you"
"We received our order yesterday and watched it last night. The picture and sound quality were very good and I want to thank you all for making 'Tribes' available in a DVD format. The last time I recall seeing it was during its initial televised release in 1970. A great movie that brought back a lot of fond memories. Best Regards"
"An excellent service! Have been looking for Norwood and Buster and Billie for years and found both on this site! Thank you!!"
"Got a movie from you folks, Glory Glory. Did not watch it right away. When we did, the first half was ok but the second half was skipping video and sound and would not play completely. Then we figured out we had to switch off blue-ray and switch on DVD player. Played great when we got the setting right! Good job and thank you for this great movie!"
"I have been searching for some old movies that I've not been able to find until now, like the 1970's movie TRIBES with Jan Michael Vincent! Quick shipment too. Will be ordering again. Thanks for the memories!"
"The VHS tape of "The Promise" was almost on its last life - I had been searching for the dvd for a long time - Was so happy to have the DVD finally. It is reassuring to know that this company can find rare films. Would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for "The Promise". I saw it first in 1979/80 watching with my mom. We both cried at the end."
"Follow up! ... Just wanted to let you know that we got the movie, The Earthling. Thank you so much for the customer care that you rendered to us. We appreciate the movie and what you did to fix our problem. Thank you!"
"My wife and I saw Glen Campbell in the film 'Norwood' when it first came out in UK late 60's I think. Was a fan of Glen and have continued to be for last 40 years or more. I bought the soundtrack album after seeing the film which I have played many times, but had never seen the film again, despite always looking out for it. Our son heard me talking about it again recently and kindly located it at Sunshine Vintage Movies. We watched it as soon as it arrived and the memories came flooding back, thank you so much for a superb service. So sad to see Glen at his peak and now suffering from the ravages of Altzeimers. Many thanks for the happy memories!"
"The quality of The Promise DVD I purchased is quite good. Thanks for making it possible for me to own this move."
"Being a huge John Denver fan for over 40 years, this movie was a definite MUST HAVE to my collection. Keep in mind these movies are OVER FORTY years old -- I saw the original movie when it first aired Nov. 9, 1973. Cried my eyes out. Loved "Sunshine Christmas" and then saw every episode of the short-lived TV series! Over the years I have owned 'bootleg' copies of this movie, terrible sound, awful picture -- BUT ... "SUNSHINE VINTAGE MOVIES" has made available the best copy I have ever owned!! Now I can enjoy this movie anytime I want! THANK YOU for this opportunity! This movie touched so many people and over the years I've come across people who really want to see this movie again... so I'm definitely going to recommend SUNSHINE VINTAGE MOVIES to all those who are looking for this movie."
"I received a delivery of the 1973 movie Sunshine and I would just like to say thank you ... The copy was so much better than I had expected, I have been looking for this particular movie for a long time and I am glad that you were able to provide it ... Many many Thanks"
"I recently purchased the 1973 movie Sunshine. It brought back so many memories and things I didn't remember, which was nice. The quality was as good as it possibly could be for that time. I loved it, thanks so much!"
"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my DVD of The Christmas Tree. First off, I was stunned the it came in the mail before Christmas. As for the quality, it was much better than I thought it would be. Thanks for my DVD, it has taken me 20 years to find it. In my house The Christmas Tree will become a Holiday must see."
"My wife of 41 years and I share our favorite movies every year at Christmas time. One movie I always talk about is "The Christmas Tree." I only saw it once and remember crying my eyes out. I mention it every Christmas but we never find it being run on TV. This year I set about to locate it and, after much searching, came across your website. I was overjoyed. I ordered it and it came yesterday, Christmas Eve. After church service last night, my wife and I watched it and, again, tears flowed like water.
Thanks for bringing a special movie to us. We will watch it, along with our other favorites, every Christmas.
Coincidentally, the day I found your website was the day Virna Lisi passed away. Loved her in this film and loved her for her stance against being typecast as the "dumb blond." Although her role in this movie is not a major one, her character as the loving girlfriend and "mother" to Pascal helped make this movie what it is."
"A Christmas to Remember (1978), Jason Robards and Eva Marie Saint; I saw this movie on TV quite by accident years ago and for some reason my faint memories of it stuck with me. For reasons I'm not even sure of, I decided to do a web search for it and happened upon Sunshine Vintage Movies. They were one of only two sources I found that offered it. In my opinion it is an excellent movie. I am surprised and saddened that it is not offered as a seasonal favorite on TV, but has fallen into the forgotten category. Even among these testimonials I see I am the first to comment on this film. If you want to see a Christmas movie that is entertaining and shows the true meaning of truth, love, and healing, this is for you. It will pull at your heart strings. The acting and story line are well done. The movie deserves to stand the test of time."
"I was very pleased with the DVD Little Darlings. It was just as I remebered! The quality was great! It felt just like watching it in the 80's. I would not have wanted to see it in the high def we have today. I will treasure this copy even if it is released in "new digitally inhanced" form !! Thanks for the memories!!! I will refer others to your site."
"Many thanks for offering "The Christmas Tree"!
I had been hoping to find a copy in DVD format, for years. I had originally seen the film when it was first broadcast in the US over CBS TV network, in 1974. Later, VHS tapes were occasionally available but I only found them cropped to Full Screen format, not Letterboxed for the original 1.85:1 screen ratio. Your DVD shows very nicely in 16:9 widescreen format. On my newest Hi-Def TV, the colors and clarity are very good for such an old film and one which has never been painstakingly digitally restored by any studios.
The film was originally produced in France and was recorded concurrently in English and French. This is the English language version which was released in US theaters at the same time as the alternate was shown in French cinemas (Fall, 1969). The English of Virna Lisi (Italian) and Bourvil (French) were recorded by those actors and their slight accents remain wonderfully intact - just as they should be. Overall audio quality is very good and clear throughout.
In 2012, a French language DVD was (finally) released, but only in PAL - Region-2 format. It was ONLY in French, without subtitles and with no extra features added. So, still there is nothing is lacking for viewers of this splendid English version. A great addition for any family's holiday viewing."
"I ordered a copy of Little Darlings to give to my young niece as a gift. I was greatly impressed by the quality. Better than I anticipated and seemingly at least as good as my long-gone original VHS movie. Thanks. I'll be ordering again soon."
"I'm very happy that my "Island of the blue Dolphins-DVD" arrived yesterday. Thank you so much for making these movie available."
"Many thanks for the DVD of the film 'Sunshine'. Despite the age of the original film (back in the early 1970's) it is of good enough quality for me to enjoy the film which I haven't seen since it was was first shown in cinemas all those years ago. All that I had from the time of its original release was a viny soundtrack LP consisting of a few items of music plus some spoken dialogue. Now that I have a DVD of the film, I can watch it in its entirety any time, and it has been well worth all the time that I have spent trying to track down a copy. Many thanks again."
"I have been looking for Island of the Blue Dolphin DVD for a long time. Found it on this site and ordered it. Extremely happy with the quality of the DVD. Happy to now watch the movie after reading the book. Thanks!!"

"Peter Proud was a movie I have been searching for and was so glad when I finally got to order it and see again. I was shocked how my memory only remembered the beginning of the movie and now that I am older I really was able to follow Peter Proud in its entirety. Thank you for the great opportunity."
"We watched Sunshine last night, a real tear-jerker! Thank you!"
"My Dad and I used to watch The Earthling all the time. I have such great memories of this movie. I have tried EVERYTHING to find it. Then I ran across your website. I can't even describe how deliriously happy this makes me. Thanks for taking the time to hunt down the tough ones!"
"Baby Blue Marine: Very good quality, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is close captioned."
"Thank you for dvds that arrived today, 'Sunshine, Sunshine Christmas and Buster & Billie'. Enjoyed playing them already, great to see them again."
"I was so thankful to find your website. I have been looking for the movie Sunshine for sometime now and couldn't find it anywhere. Thank you for making it possible for me to have the movie which is out of print now. Such a touching movie. I seen it first as a young girl. And now that I am terminally ill was longing to see it again to see a brave young woman and her fight for life. Thanks again for making it possible to have the movie."

"I have purchased The Earthling and have enjoyed it very much."
"I have been looking and looking for "little Darlings" and found it on here. I was a little unsure about ordering it and the how the quality of it would be, but I did order it and I can't thank you enough. I am very happy. I already watched it.. I wanted to say Thank You I would order again anytime. :)"
"Package with DVD's The Egyptian and Samson & Delilah has arrived in very good condition. Thank you!"
"I would like to personally thank you for the HIGH QUALITY DVD I received today of one of my favourite films of the 70s NORWOOD starring Glen Campbell and Kim Darby, Glen Campbell is possibly the best country and western singer that I grew up with and his vocal talent, guitar and bag pipes playing and acting will always hold a special place in the heart of millions especially the writer. So once again thank you for your fast shipment of excellent well packed product ! A++ HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"
"Ordered Sunshine and Sunshine Christmas. I watched them when they first came out and loved them. Then my best friend ended up married to Kenneth Minter who is in Sunshine Christmas, can't remember the charater name, but he is the guy in the round dark glasses. He passed away earlier this year so it will be good to be able to see him in the film whenever I want. I think my friend and his children and grand children will enjoy it as well. Thank you for having these movies so he can live in our memories forever."
"I did receive the video "The Promise" and wanted to let you know the quality of the DVD is perfect. Thanks so much."
"I just finished watching "The Earthling" DVD that I received and I want to thank you for an excellent copy of this 1980 film. Sometimes you do not know what to expect from old films that are transferred to DVD format and I have had my share of poorly done work in that area. I am very pleased with yours in all aspects, including the sound. Now at last I know where to go if I want a film that I cannot find otherwise. Again, thank you so much!"
"I had never seen the original Sunshine movie and I hadn't seen Sunshine Christmas since it came out in 1977. I was glad to see both. Thank you"
"It has been so long since I have seen this feature (Beauty and the Beast) and equally as long since I have looked for it off and on. God bless you!"
"I now have The Promise and am very happy."
"I received my Norwood movie today, and all I can say is THANK YOU VERY MUCH! The quality of this dvd is incredible. I ordered this dvd online years ago and the quality wasn't great and it also had spanish subtitles all the way through it. So once again I can't thank you all enough."
"I just wanted to thank you so much for making this movie available. The last time I had seen Sunshine I was 8 years old and watch it with my mother on TV. She was just recently diagnosed with inoperable cancer and it was so special for me to see this again. Thanks again"
"Beauty and the Beast arrived today. Views fine even on a 70" screen. All is well. Thank you so much!!"
"Thank you Sunshine Vintage Movies, I have just received my DVD. I am so thrilled to receive it as I have wanted the film Norwood, starring Glen Campbell for years and years. I watched it straight away and it brought back so many nostalgic memories, the songs still as good as they ever were. I have loved Glen since my teens in the 1970s and still do, what a talent. I had almost given up trying to find Norwood on film and thought I would have to make do with my LP record, but now I have it on DVD. Thanks also to Sunshine Vintage Movies for the ease of the transaction,the good condition and how quickly the DVD came. Happy, Happy!"
"I ORDERED BOTH THE SUNSHINE MOVIES (SET) FOR MY WIFE. SHE HAS BEEN LOOKING FOR THEM TO WATCH FOR A LONG TIME, BUT THE CABLE NETWORK HERE IN ARKANSAS NEVER PLAYED THEM OR SHE JUST MISSED THEM, SO I GOT THEM FOR HER, SHE REALLY GOT A RENEWED JOY OUT OF REWATCHING BOTH MOVIES!"
"Little Darlings" has always been a favorite movie of mine and very hard to find. It was filmed here in Georgia and an actor that I went to high school with was in the very beginning of the movie. Also the music I have always loved. The resolution was just fine! I was not disappointed with this DVD. Thank you many times!!!"
"I watched the Beauty & The Beast movie when it first came out and it has been on my mind all these years. I was so happy to see you had it. I ordered it and it is just as good as I remembered. Thank-you so much."
"Recently received Baby Blue Marine, and Tribes. Was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the dvd's. Thank you!"
"In the early 1970s, my sister and I sat on our couch one evening and watched Sunshine together. I remember how much it touched both of us and how we were both boo-hooing like crazy throughout the movie. This movie never left my memory, and had been searching for quite awhile before I found you. Were in our early 60s now and my sister barely remembered the movie until I surprised her with a copy and after about 45 years we could have a good cry together, albeit, hundreds of miles apart. Thanks for the memories and keep up the good work! Bless you!"
"I saw the movie Sunshine (1973) when it aired, when I was young and wild (19). This left such a impression on me that I almost cried. After seeing this version all others are irreverent. This is a shame it was only aired once. Everyone should see this version."
"Hi there, Just a quick email to say I have received my DVD of William Holden's film The Christmas Tree Movie 1969, it came this morning post. Thank you very much."
"Very happy with the DVD of the Christmas Tree you recently sent. I'd been looking for it for many years."
"Beauty and the Beast arrived yesterday. We watched it and the quality is very good. Thanks for your help."
"Just viewed Beauty and the Beast with George C Scott + Trish Van Dere. Watched it on TV's Hallmark Hall of Fame way back in the 70's...before cell phones, personal computers, social media outlets., when the only telephone hung on the kitchen wall with a 2 mile twisted cord. Never forgot it. Disney's version only drove its memory and recollection deeper into my brain. What a beautifully scripted, directed, performed production...holding true to the original French Fairy Tale. It holds its own when compared to Cocteau's version with Catherine Deneuve, so well loved by this viewer. The DVD I received was exceptional in quality...not digitally remastered, but more than acceptable. Beautiful, lovely, elegant, intelligent, humorous, + heartwarming. George c Scott's performance (due to script + direction) worthy of his performance as Scrooge in The Christmas Carol...I had forgotten how beautiful Trish Van Dere is as both a woman and an actress...I had not realized Bernard Lee acted in any movie but as M in James Bond movies. This DVD a delight. Thank you Sunshine Vintage Movies. You've got a customer for life."
"I live in the Springfield MA area where most of the Reincarnation of Peter Proud was filmed, so it's fun to see places that you recognize. The quality was good and I would recommend this site for anyone looking for a "hard to find" movie. Thank you Sunshine Vintage Movies."
"Thank you for the Movie SUNSHINE. I bought it for my sister. And I am glad it is original. Just how we remember it. Many thanks to Ya. Regards, Annemarie."
"I just wanted to say that over the years I have purchased the 1973 movie Sunshine on VHS and on DVD. The quality was poor on both but it didn't really matter because this is one of my all time favorite movies so I thought I would give it another try to buy it on DVD with Sunshine Vintage Movies. Your copy was the BEST. This is the cleanest copy I have purchased. I am so impressed. Thanks, Renee"
"I ran across this specialized website and I'm so glad I did. We bought a couple of movies that I never thought I'd see again. One of which is Buster and Billie … such a wonderful love story … just the way Buster was able to give Billie so much for no other reason than love. We have watched it 3 times and I laugh and cry every time. The other movie is Little Darlings … talk about bringing back memories. Such good acting by the entire cast. Gotta love a young Matt Dillon and Kristy McNichol is so good. This was another tearjerker I made my husband watch and he really liked it too. Thanks so much."
"Defiance is such an 80's movie lol. A little cheesy but I love Jan-Michael Vincent and it is definitely a feel good movie that I really enjoyed seeing again."
"I received the movie The Earthling and I was finally able to share it with my wife and kids. I loved it when I saw it years ago, what a great life lesson for both children and adults. Great story and both actors William Holden and Ricky Schroder are amazing. A Beautiful movie, THANK YOU SUNSHINE VINTAGE MOVIES!"
"All my life my father has been telling me about the 1976 version of Beauty and the Beast starring George C. Scott. As such, I have been searching online for years for a version of this film without any success. This year, I decided to try one last time. I was beyond excited when I stumbled across the Sunshine VM website but living in the UK I was worried that the DVD wouldn't work on our DVD players over here. I needn't have worried at all - the DVD arrived and it works perfectly. I can't wait to surprise my dad with this on Christmas day. Thank you so much to the team at Sunshine Vintage Movies!"
"Just received my order of 'Samson & Delilah' and 'The Egyptian' this morning and ate'em right up ... beautiful quality, thank you so much. I debated and searched other sites for a while before I decided to take a chance on yours ... I was afraid I might be getting a pan and scan from an old vhs tape ... I'm so glad I took the chance ... beautiful quality and thanks again."
"Many thanks for "The Earthling" (1980) DVD that I just got today. Great quality DVD."
"Thank you for making it possible for me to see this wonderful film again, SUNSHINE. Best wishes, Judy"
"I could not be happier! I have looked for Little Darlings for years and could not find it on DVD. I played the movie and it is perfect! I grew up watching this movie every single time it would air on TV with my mom. It was our thing to do together. Now I get to surprise her with a movie night! Sunshine Vintage Movies has a new loyal customer! I cannot thank you enough. This movie means a lot to me."
"Thank you for the movie"Sunshine". I first saw it on TV after I had returned from the Peace Corps in Latin America, and my husband and I were divorcing. It gave me the good cry I needed. It's good to see it again. I would recommend your service to anybody!"
"Thank you so much for Beauty and the Beast with George C Scott! Your great customer service was very much appreciated, thank you for your mail-order option. I never thought I would see this movie again!!!"
"Received the DVD Buster & Billie. I wanted to watch this with my husband as he has never seen it. It was so much fun to watch the movie again. The last I saw it was at a drive in movie! Gave up looking for it until I ran across it on your website. My husband enjoyed the movie as much as I did. Thanks for making these classics available again! I am sure I will order many more movies."
"Getday, I would like to let you know that I have received the Sunshine Movies and they have been playing with no error on my DVD, I wish to say Thank you for the memories that they bought back to me from the very first time I sat and watched the movies as a young mum, Such a wonderful story of bravery from a very young mother, it makes me think a lot about my life and what I would do if that was me. Cheers"
"Was so pleased to finally be able to watch the movie Sunshine again. Hadn't seen it on TV for many years and hadn't been able to find it anywhere until I came across your website. I have loved this movie since I first saw it as a young girl. Even though it was 1970s quality I still enjoyed the movie as much as ever. Thanks so much."
"I was in love with Jan-Michael Vincent as a teen. Loved "Buster and Billie" because of the love theme and good-boy - bad-girl combination. Have wanted to see this movie again for 30 years!!! I was thrilled to receive my movie and enjoyed it immensely!!! It was as wonderful as I remembered. The quality of the movie was good. Thank you so much!!!"
"I got the movie Beauty and the Beast DVD with George C Scott 1976 I've wanted the movie for many years. This movie was very good quality as when it came out on TV in 1976. There was no defect in the sound or picture. Thank you so much for having this movie, I couldn't be happier."
"I first saw the movie Sunshine on t.v. and it was the most beautiful and saddest movie I have ever seen in my life. Thank you so much! The quality of the movies are wonderful, thank you so much!"
"Thank you for having the movie "The Egyptian" in your library. I have wanted a copy of this film for many years but the copies available were quite expensive. This is a a great film from hollywoods great biblical epics. The dvd was superb!!!, better than the network broadcast that I remember. I am so pleased that I found your site and will visit it often to check on other films. Thank you again for your great service and excellent dvd."
"The Earthling starring William Holden & Ricky Schroder was an awesome movie years ago when I saw it. Emotional ups and downs and set in beautiful Australia. A coming of age set in the mountains of the outback...never found it on dvd after searching forever until now...ordered it and read the insert warning about transfer qualities...but the movie was as good as my vhs copy and still inspiring. Thank you so much for making Earthling available."
"I ordered the movie The Earthling and am VERY pleased with it! I am so glad to be able to own this digital copy! Thank you for providing it! I will certainly recommend others to view your movie selections."

"I ordered the 1976 Beauty and the Beast starring George C. Scott and Trish Van Devere.. I had a copy that was on tape and was excited to find a version on DVD. The quality of the DVD is very, very good. I now have a source for vintage movies. I recommend Sunshine Vintage Movies highly."
"I can't tell you how happy I am to have finally found the "Sunshine" movie. I remember it so well (except for the fact I'd have sworn we saw it at the theatre or drive-in movie). I guess Made for TV movies aren't as easy to come by as the others and I'm just so grateful to have another opportunity to see it. Thank you for making it possible."
"The Earthling". Wow, just like I remember it as a kid! I am happy to own this video and now I can share it with my son. This movie really touched my heart as a kid and I can watch it over and over again. Thank you Sunshine Vintage Movies!"

Was never able to get any response from the seller. Then I found your site and so glad I took the chance and tried again. The DVD picture and sound are just great. So nice to see this movie again, just loved it! Think your site is the best for getting older and out of print moves, would have no problems ordering again. Your letter was very nice, shows you really care about the products and customers.
"I received the video of "The Reincarnation of Peter Proud" today. I was so happy, I'm thrilled with it!"
"Just watched both Sunshine movies. They were just as I remembered when I first saw them as a kid. I cried in the same spots. Also watched Buster and Billie it was everything I remembered too. Thank you so much for bringing back some childhood favorites."
"I had been looking for Buster and Billie for years. When I found your site couldn't wait to order it.. The movie is as remembered. I wouldn't change a thing... Thank you so much"
"Sunshine (1973), I viewed this movie when it was first released and never forgot it, I was 8 years old. How wonderful it was to receive your email informing me of its being sent and I received it today!! As one of your reviewers stated...it was like watching it on TV back in the 70s, and being older I noticed many things that went over my 8 years old head. I cannot say enough how happy I have been through the whole process. YOU GUYS ARE TOPS!!! And will be sharing your website for other movie lovers like me that have a hard time finding movies we love and have not forgotten. Many Thanks....10 STARS!!"

I have searched for 20 years for this film...... Well done. I am humbled."
"Sunshine, the tv film was transmitted in the UK shortly after we first met. Now almost 40 years later we can sit down with our three daughters and watch a lovely poignant film thanks to Sunshine Vintage Movies. At the time of writing we have already watched it without the kids and it was like being 21 again."
"I had searched for the film Glory! Glory! For years! It is probably the best film I had ever seen. When I came across it on your site, I almost died from joy! Thank you so much for ending my long journey! I have already watched it 6 times. This movie is moving, and beautifully written! Thank you!"
"I first saw the movie Sunshine back when it aired in 1973 I was 15yrs. old. It was on TV and I watched this movie with my mom and dad and lil sister Ginger and next door neighbor Christine same age. I was a young mother at the time my son was born in 73. This was a heart hitting,real life story. All in our living room shed tears. The time period was so timely. Since back in 71 my mother was diagnost with Stomach Cancer, this movie hit home. The music is awesome and wonderful to the story. We have not seen it since. So since my dtrs are 34 and 30 I invited them to see this movie this month. The top that Nora wares that is backless and has two ties, I made one similar but more to my style in the front I love it, this movie inspired me to make it. Everyone young or old should see this movie BTW: the quality is good enough for me great movie. Thanks, Rhonda"
"My husband's and my first date was at a friend's house and "Sunshine" just happened to be the movie on tv that night. We were both crying our eyes out by the end of the movie. Of course we were both trying to hide the tears from each other. What afirst date. Well last week my husband passed away, after being together for 38 years yrs. I am so glad I found your web site to purchase this movie. I had ordered a DVD several years ago, but the dvd was terrible quality and the whole movie wasn't even there. I am very happy w/your quality of dvd. That first date is a wonderful memory and I can relive anytime I like now. Thank You."
"That Sunshine Christmas was available to be seen by me for the first time in almost 35 years, and with such fine service was greatly appreciated. Thank-you very much."
"My father always talks about the movie Glory! Glory! when I visit him down in Miami. I finally got it in the mail (thank you SVM!) and was able to see it this weekend. What a great movie. It will be enjoyed on many levels. My father is due for a great Christmas this year when he opens up one of his presents and see his beloved movie once again. Thanks again SVM, Robert, Orlando, FL"
"I love JD music..and once while driving through Texas I made a special trip to Claude, and re-enacted some scenes! People thought I was crazy. One Christmas they played this movie over and over; ever since it seems to have vanished. I haven't even received it yet and Im so excited. Its gonna be a great Christmas!"
"Hi, Thought I would send a few lines to let you know that the film was amazing. That film had such an impact on me all those years ago especially with the music of John Denver. I cannot believe it, am I the only person in the UK who remembers it. I seriously thought i was was going nuts over the years when I mentioned to people about this film and nobody ever heard of it. It was absolute heaven. Now I know what have I been missing all these years. Well take care and thanks once again for everything."
"You have no idea how much the movie Sunshine meant to our family! Thank you so much for providing the chance for us to see it again after talking about it for so long. I am so happy we found your website!!! I actually have a niece named Jill after this movie, that is how much it touched our hearts, she is all grown up now and in college. We loved the music of John Denver and I guess that is one reason it left such an indelible mark. Something about it spoke to us. We purchased from someone else about a year ago that was obviously selling very poor, dark homemade copies. Thankfully, we found your website because the quality of your movies are wonderful in comparison. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!"
"I just found your website and I have a check in the mail for the Sunshine set. I can still recall watching the movie nearly 40 years ago, and still listen to John Denver on my iPod in my car every day. Even my 30 something sons are still hooked. Thanks for making this movie available."
"Have just received my two DVD'S and have already watched them. They were great and just as I remembered them nearly forty years ago. Many thanks and I wish you continued success with your business."
"Received movies. Really enjoyed them. Thanks"

"Oh thank you so much. I have looked for this movie for years and couldn't find it. Can't wait to watch it again and again!"
"what a great website I finally got my dvds I've been looking for thanks AAAAA+++++"
"Hi, I am glad to have finally found the movie Sunshine that I was looking for for years and I mean years!! I remember the night it aired on tv, it was the only movie that I remember where my entire household was totally silent during a movie. There was not a hard heart in the house. It really impacted us I think more so after we'd seen it for in a few short months our mother passed away-suddenly and naturally. "
"Hi, Just to let you know my dvd's arrived last week, safe and sound, even got hubby to watch Sunshine with me with minimal fight!
Thanks again and for your great communication, Claire (UK)"
"Thank you. I received my movies (Sunshine, Sunshine Christmas and Buster & Billie) and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Brought me back to the days of watching "real movies" on TV without all the enhancements. Gratefully, Jane"
"My sister played then and called to thank me for them. She was still sniffing. Just wanted to let you know that we are very pleased with the dvd's. Thanks again."
"Thank-you! My husband has been looking the the movie Sunshine for years. I was so happy to find it! We sat down with a big box of kleenex and bawled our way through it."
"I'm pleased to avise the DVD's arrived yesterday. Last night my wife and I had the pleasure and joy of watching them. Again, thanks for making these videos available. "
"This is a dream come true! Have been waiting ALL these years for the movie SUNSHINE! I wanted my daughter to see this movie all of my life! She was two in 1973. I was sick so the story has very special meaning; I survived – THANK GOD! Thank you so much for making my dream come true! I have the book and the soundtrack! Now – my children will see the movie I have talked about all of their lives! Thanks so much! Sheryl"
"Thank You very much! After all these years, I finally have a copy of Sunshine and Sunshine Christmas all my own"
