A FRIEND INDEED - THE BILL SACKTER STORY (Documentary DVD)
Abandoned in a mental institution at age 7, Bill Sackter would never see his family again. When he was released 44 years later, a chance meeting with a young college student (Barry Morrow) changed his life forever.
Bill became the harmonica-playing proprietor of “Wild Bill’s Coffee Shop” and his upbeat personality soon got him noticed. Even though he couldn’t read or write, he deeply embraced every moment and every relationship. All he needed was a second chance.
Bill’s life story spread throughout the country when Mickey Rooney and Dennis Quaid starred in the highly successful tv movie “Bill” (1981) which dramatized Bill and Barry’s relationship. It was a landmark production that forever changed the world’s perception of people with disabilities.
