-Comment: Christopher Hanks in blue bibs (pictured). I found this movie many weeks ago but still can't find any clips or trailers on the web. There was a VHS release in 1989. I found a DVD offer but that's a VHS transfer. The movie is aka "Buzzard" and only 66 minutes (according to IMDb, other sources say 81minutes). Also starring 14 (or 12 yo) yo Chris Penn (1965-2006, Footloose) and 15 yo Dean Cain. Probably a good children's detective film with a boy, his dog and a talking buzzard. I can't say much more about this movie. Although I usually don't like boys with such glasses and movies of the 70s I would like to see it. Not sure of farm content and his exact age. Rating 5 for now.

Bought this movie and just watched it. Has boy wearing osh kosh blue bib overalls almost the entire time. I highly rate it. Worth picking up a copy to see.

Thanks. But I don't think that I will buy it.
Is there a DVD?
