All those nights I was away from the farm, I dreamed of nothing but being up here. Place all fixed up and you waiting for me as I came up the trail. It's ours, Lissy. Nothing's gonna keep us from having it now.

Beautiful Janet Leigh stars in this her first film, a Civil War era romance with a surprise twist ending.
I only learned of this film when Janet Leigh mentioned it once and I started my quest to see it. Eventually I was able to buy a 16mm print and see that this forgotten gem is a treasure! Van Johnson, as the wandering stranger and Thomas Mitchell as the suspecting father are at odds. Lovely Ms. Leigh radiates with charm and mystery, as she wants to accept the aid of this handsome young man. Events lead to test the hard felt feelings of this family trying to heal after the bitter War Between the States. In the end, truth, acceptance, forgiveness and love win out. I recommend it highly! THANKS JANET!
