There is one scene where a young Natalie Wood is supposed to run across a bridge. She was told that the bridge would collapse after she got to the other side, but there was an accident and the bridge collapsed while she was still on it. She broke her hand and it never healed properly. She always wore a bracelet to hide the lump left behind. See more »
This film is about a widower and farmer, Mr Matthews, played well by Walter Brennan. He buys a farm and moves with four children. His oldest daughter, Deborah, is more of a mother figure in the house. She is well played by Marguerite Chapman. Natalie Wood plays younger sister, Susan. There is brother Phinneus and sister Abigail. Mr Matthews is a stubborn old man who refuses to learn new things or keep up with the times. When he is injured, Deborah takes charge and make changes. Wood's Susan joins the 4 H Club and raises two lambs for a ribbon at a fair. Susan risks her life to save them. The film is fine with decent performances all around. The ending could have been better though. The film is worth watching at least once. There are some light moments. This film is a fine melodrama overall.
