A stubborn old farmer won't listen to any of his neighbors about how to improve the efficiency of his farm with modern methods, as he thinks "the old ways" were just fine. His three daughters live on the farm with him, and the oldest one, a teenager, has fallen in love with a local boy. However, she knows that she is expected to help her father work the farm and is torn between her love for the local boy and her father's expectations for her to continue working the farm. Written by
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.
