Perhaps they also should have done that with Francis Scott Key. ;-)

at. 10A,B,C - Oh, I remember seeing that one when I was a child. I actually thought it was such a thrilling story (maybe because I missed the end - *lol*). However, I'll also have to admit that when I finally saw it again several years later, and got to the end, it wasn't quite as I remembered :D
