5.0 out of 5 stars superb quality Feb. 14 2010
By Segue L. Doering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD-R|Verified Purchase
After waiting years for this movie to be released on dvd I was a little skeptical about buying a dvd-r (manufactored on demand)for $30.00 plus. However, the dvd quality is superb. There are no extras on the dvd- a disappointment since the movie is so well made. However, the strength of the film stands on its own. Performances by ALL actors are top notch. The 2 actors portraying Steve (Luke Edwards and Corin Nemec) are unsurpassd. Watching Luke Edward's character transformation from "Stevie" (innocent and naive), to "Steve" mentally abused, sexually molested, a cigarette smoking 7 year old with dark circles under his eyes is a haunting experience. A superb Made For TV movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tragic Story, Tragic Lives Sept. 1 2010
By Paul A. Klinger - Published on Amazon.com
I became interested in this case from the beginning, as relatives of mine lived
across the street from the Stayner family in Merced at that time. I have a cable VHS copy of
this fine film, and am glad to see it is now on DVD. It is a riveting account of
one of the most horrendous kidnappings of our time. Even though the film ends on
a hopeful note, unfortunately it ultimately ended tragically for almost everyone
involved, while the perpetrator, Mr. Parnell received far too lenient treatment.
I wonder if the DVD adds any footnotes as to the sad fates of both victims, which
occurred well after the TV movie aired.

5.0 out of 5 stars I know I never believed in curses until I saw what this family suffered Sept. 9 2012
By E. Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
I KNOW MY FIRST NAME IS STEVEN (1989, 180 minutes) was quite the blockbuster miniseries and well deserved. No story like it had been produced before, and risks were taken with this film that paid off: the risk of telling the entire truth.

Young Steven Stayner ("Corky" Nemec in his star-making role) was abducted at age 7 by one Kenneth Parnell (an uncredited Arliss Howard who always plays pathetic villains). Parnell was a notorious child molester and rapist who went through Lord only knows how many victims. As a teen, Steve, who has since been known by the name Dennis Parnell, witnesses the rape of a young boy Parnell has just kidnapped. He's had enough and makes a harrowing escape with the little boy in his arms.

Steven is processed through law enforcement and returns to his family. Paterfamilias Del Stayner (John Ashton - I do not know why I keep recalling Craig T. Nelson in this role) is somewhat bothered by the teen Steven who returns home. When he discovers what has transpired, he blames his son for being raped. Yes, that's right: he blamed his son for being raped. The remainder of this tale of bravery and heartwrenching sadness will have you leaping out of your seat. Even today I weep when I see it.

If you look closely, you will see the real life Steven Stayner in this film, in the uncredited role of a police officer who visits the Stayner's home. There are two horrific epilogues to the Stayner tragedy: Steven was killed shortly before the release of this film, in a motorcycle accident. Then only some years later, his brother the infamous Corey Stayner was charged with being the "Yosemite Killer". A vicious real-life serial killer. Perhaps you recall that true story along with this true story as told in the film.

All in all, it seems these people really were cursed - a subject that arises in the film and is addressed along with Parnell's habitual rape. There are naturally no explicit scenes here, but the distant cries of a little boy being raped by Parnell and overheard by Steven will have you weeping angry, helpless tears. It does that to me every time.

This reminds me of several related local tragedies; one in particular is documented in the book Why Johnny Can't Come Home, regarding the case of Johnny Gosch and written by his mom Noreen. The disappearance of Des Moines native Johnny Gosch, who is said to be alive and in contact with his mother, is probably the most haunting case since the famous Boy in the Box from the 1950s.

Get this - you must not miss it if you haven't ever seen it. I cannot accurately describe to you what it was like to see this when it first aired in May of 1989. (I can't even recall the network, was it ABC?) However, it has lost none of its power, and nothing comes close to this masterful exposé except perhaps the pathetic 1999 film The Deep End of the Ocean (see my review) based on the novel that tried a little to rip-off the Stayner story, The Deep End of the Ocean (Oprah's Book Club).

You must see this film. It will get you involved in ways you never thought possible, to help put a stop to this kind of crime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tim White, last survivor, dies at 35. April 10 2010
By Sharon L. Divis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD-R|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie when it aired on television and then later rented it to show it to my own kids after I heard Steven had died in a motorcycle accident. I rented it again when Carey Stayner was revealed as the Yosemite serial killer. There is actually a passage in the movie where Steven upon his return asks where his older brother is and his mom replies he's at Yosemite; "he loves it there." Now I just found out that the LA County Deputy Sheriff Timothy White, who died this past week was the 5-year-old boy kidnapped by Ken Parnell and saved by Steven Stayner. How tragic. He was only 35.

5.0 out of 5 stars A shattered family April 15 2010
By Harrison Ford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD-R|Verified Purchase
During 1972 when Steven Stayner was seven, a pedophile (Kenneth Parnell) in cahoots with another (Robert Murphy) who only helps in kidnapping Steven Stayner. It is a shocking true story of the notorious case of the kidnapping of Steven Stayner where Steven had been kidnapped for seven years and during that time his abductor (Parnell) had forced the young Steven Stayner into submission as well as brainwashing him. Everything changed when Kenneth Parnell, Steven Stayner's abductor, seven years later abducts another boy Timmy White and fourteen year-old Steve Stayner rescues Timmy white from Kenneth Parnell. Then Parnell is later arrested after Steve Stayner identifies himself to authorities and then later Murphy was subsequently arrested as well. Afterward, Steven Stayner struggles with realization of the confrontation Kenneth Parrell in and outside of court and the public exposure of sexual molestation. A great and alarming true story about the kidnapping and exploitation of children.
