Great Movie - Buy DVD at Vermont public television
4 April 2010 | by mail-704-790404See all my reviews

The movie is great and fun to watch.

Everybody who likes Vermont should see it. It is fun entertainment and the fact that Fred Tuttle subsequently ran in and won the Republican primary for real against a rich out-of-stater who wanted to buy a Senate seat makes it even better.

The DVD has the eulogy on Fred Tuttle by Vermont public radio telling that story as an extra.

The DVD does not show up on Amazon as available but you can order it at the online store of Vermont Public television (www.vpt.org/store).

Get it and enjoy!
