A Rare Treasure
2 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this at a 4-H Agents Conference...I had never seen it before, possibly because I've always lived in urban areas. I'm such a fan of Wood and Brennan, I took a chance buying it. It shows how 4-H members were able to teach their parents better farming practices. I agree with other reviewers that it could be better... sometimes the logic fails me, but more character development would make a longer film.

The copy I have is very gritty, I'd like to see it re-mastered.
