 1979 | ABC-TV

A boy with two exciting talents—basketball and ballet—gives the American television viewer a real treat in the ABC Afterschool Specials presentation A Special Gift. Martin Tahse Productions took a story in which a personable young boy faced the first great dilemma of his life and brought it to life in such a way that no viewer was spared the agony of helping him make the choice.
