"Resurrection"... (the feature 1980 film....NOT the made for TV
Dana Delaney version ..awful
beyond verbal ability to describe!!!). was..and. does
remain on my top "TOP" lists.....for a myriad of reasons. I won't get pedantic here in expanding upon thatz.... , but I had, over the years, managed to "tape" onto VHS medium...several copies. Quality of the tape itself was mediocre, and then I soon learned in the 90'sthat
the film was unavailable...
In the early 2000's , I did an internet 'search' and found
E Bay had several sellers...
Then, shortly after, Amazon
(.Com) had several copies.
Very soon after that, supply dried up.....until last year
(2006 ish) when the DVD became available...I believe I bid and bought one on E Bay and one on Amazon (or another DVD site)
If you search and are unable to 'snag' a copy....(DVD... or VHS at the very least.... from a reputable company)you may contact me at :

Just like everyone else I am trying to find the movie Ressurection with Ellen Burstyn in it.. I don't like the other one with Dana Delaney.. Was horrible.. But would love to find the original.. Can you help me?

For all of those who want the truth about this quality film, read on. The movie has NEVER been on dvd and is not even on the horizon. Burned copies are all over the place but the quality is horrible. Its burned from a non-widscreen VHS tape or from a television broadcast. As many have said it is a fantastic film that I and multitudes of others are awaiting. It must be released in widscreen(imagine a nice Criterion or HD release?). If it has extras that would be astounding.
You must write to various distributers and/or film companies and make sure they know it would be lucritive for them. Money and rights I'm sure are the hold up.

I saw this movie (starring Ellen Burstyn) in 1980 and it has remained in my mind since that time. It was an outstanding movie and I would love to see in released in DVD format. It is one that I would enjoy watching over and over again. I would also like to give it as gifts.

Is Resurrection w/Ellen Burstyn and Sam Shepard still not available on dv?--(This questions refers to the "Wake Up!" 1/2008 comment above that all copies are burned copies and not very good quality.)
Also: someone once told me (I think) that the character is based on the story of a real healer. Is that true and does anyone know her name?

i saw this wonderful movie as a thirty year oldand for some reason i waspretty sure she would eventually return to the gas station to stay although i sensed this just as she was admiring the odd collection of stuff that farnsworth's character had kept over the years. small things like this remain after all these years and only one viewing! i cant wait to see it again

I saw this movie years ago at the Toronto Film Festival. Shortly after my father died and I was holding his hand when he passed over. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I would love to get ahold of the movie.
