    It was an animated made-for-TV movie from 1971 and I still remember bits and pieces of it, especially the song "Me and My Arrow." The main character was a round headed boy named Oblio who struggles along in a world where everything is pointed. It was just one of those films I saw as a kid that's just stuck with me all these years and I'd love to see it again. Here's the IMDB link.

    I think there was a rights issue with the music or something like that. Isn't there 3 different versions of THE POINT, each with different narration or am I nuts?

    Right...apparently it was originally narrated by Dustin Hoffman, the video and LD versions were narrated by Ringo Starr, and a Disney Channel version was narrated by Alan Thicke. This is according to IMDB. I'd certainly perfer the Dustin Hoffman version.

    Thanks Tony...my searching skills are pathetic on this site. Looks like it was really close to a release at one point but still MIA. [​IMG]

    A DVD release with all 3 sound tracks would be pretty cool.

    i dont think it was recalled.
    i think it was actually released,but no retailers picked it up due to the possibility that the studio who released it didnt have the dvd rights.

    same place that released the final countdown earlier, and some other titles.

    Saw this tidbit on Musictap a few days ago: "BMG Heritage will issue a Harry Nilsson DVD named The Point on March 23. Ringo Starr also factors in heavily on this issue."
