I’m a New Zealander who has lived in Finland for the past 46+ years. I knew nothing of the Snow Goose story until the 1980s when my young son listened to an audio cassette of it related by Spike Milligan with accompanying music by the London Symphony Orchestra. My son loved it. Later, I bought “The Snow Goose” book beautifully illustrated by Angela Barrett and published in 2007. And now I purchased the 1971 DVD film sold by The Garden Room. The beautiful theme of love, loyalty and selfless sacrifice moved me greatly, and, even at the age of 74, I could not help shedding tears.

Most of the film quality is acceptable but some of the diction is sub-optimal. Even so the the acting, the scene settings and the direction captures much of the spirit, pathos and love depicted so beautifully in Paul Gallico's wonderful book.
My mother read The Snow Goose to me in 1951 when I was five. We both cried a good deal. The film rekindled that moment very well, strongly recommended .

This is an amazingly rare beast that has only ever been shown on television and never officially released either on VHS or DVD. The only other copy I have seen is rubbish. This DVD, whilst obviously not digitally remastered, lives up to all my expectations and a delight to see again after so many years.

I've never forgotten "The Snow Goose" since seeing it one night here in Melbourne Australia and not realising that it was only going to receive one screening. I knew that Paul Galicco had refused major film studios from touching it after one studio wanted to give it an 'epic' size thus drowning the simplicity and its intimate nature so he refused all offers from other studious in putting it on screen. Until approx.,1971. As I played it the other night I realised I had not forgotten a single scene, that's how powerful this short telemovie is. Since now vhs machines were in existence then, the quality of the movie has somewhat suffered since then but it didn't matter and Garden Room were correct; their copy is the BEST copy you'll find. The opening 4 minutes is fine to watch but then clears up somewhat after that and the rest of the movie becomes a joy to watch. Most certainly I am not sorry for this purchase. And neither will you be. If you have never seen this magnificent telemovie, then do yourself a favour and purchase it. You'll be watching it more than once I can assure you.
