Where is "The Deer Hunter"?

): I haven't yet seen that one. :( (ditto for: Annie Hall)

The Deer Hunter won the Oscar in '78 and is one of the most haunting, harrowing and realistic movies about Vietnam ever made. Stars Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep and Christopher Walken, who won the Supporting Actor Oscar for his role.

OK, thanks for the informaion.
I'm daily checking out (via Internet) the TV programm for the next weeks, always hoping to find sth. interesting.
