I must have been a child of 10 or so when I saw this movie on television. I was totally engrossed in the story but was called away in the middle of the movie and I never got to see the end. It has stayed with me for 50 years and I have never seen it re-run. And I have definitely searched for it. I would love to see this movie again ... all the way through! Alternatively, I'd even settle for the name of the novel it was based on. But I wish someone would put it out on DVD...
Lillian Gish was absolutely wonderful as Miss Susie, as I recall. Dressed in period costume, she really was MISS SUSIE SLAGLE and someone I wanted to know. It was a powerful performance by a wonderful actress.
