I found this to be a rather well-done piece, and while Garland and Lancaster were quite good, Steven Hill and Bruce Ritchey were perfectly cast, and produced wonderful performances. The scene where the boy has run away and is drafted into a ballgame by other children who don't see him as strange has a powerful effect, and I'm amazed most of the kids were cast for parts that met their actual disabilities. This is my book-end for "David and Lisa" - I fell in love with Janet Margolin after sseing it in High school. Sure miss that girl.
