I never tire of the film and the final scene of the movie between Peter Falk and Fred Savage (The two are cast in the roles of a grandfather reading a book to his sick grandson) is guaranteed to bring a lump to my throat every time.

p.s. – This was posted in 2017. Alas, I am unaware of any showings of the film, especially in light of this year’s pandemic lockdowns.
