CHRISTMAS MOUNTAIN: THE STORY OF A COWBOY ANGEL has been released on DVD and is now available through. This release marks the 26th anniversary of the timeless Christmas classic.

"This film is about Christmas. Christmas Spirit and an Angel trying to earn his wings," said actor-writer-producer Mark Miller about his reasons for re-releasing Christmas Mountain: The Story of a Cowboy Angel. "What has happened to Christmas films with heart, spirit and soul - that the whole family can watch?"

Christmas Mountain: The Story of a Cowboy Angel is a heartwarming Christmas tale featuring American leading man Mark Miller - writer, producer and star of SAVANNAH SMILES - and his boisterous comic-sidekick, the immortal, eternally lovable, Slim Pickens.

Imprisoned, down-on-his-luck drifter, Gabe Sweet (Mark Miller) is forced to seek redemption by undertaking a Christmas charity mission on behalf of the town. Thereís only one problem - the "charity" is as empty as the hearts of the townspeople themselves. But, with the help of a dearly-departed Angel wannabe (Slim Pickens), Gabe quickly learns that the ones truly in need are the ones who already have the most.

CHRISTMAS MOUNTAIN: THE STORY OF A COWBOY ANGEL classically captures the timeless magic and spirit of Christmas. In the vein of "Miracle on 34th Street" and "Itís a Wonderful Life." Itís a journey of friendship, compassion and understanding - and along the way you learn what it means to be truly rich Ö in spirit.

REVIEWS: "This heartwarming Christmas tale contains a western twist as it tells the tale of a heavenly cowpoke who rides down to Earth to ride herd on a few people in need of some miracles." NEW YORK TIMES
