Storyline

Civil War veteran Josiah Grey comes to a small town to be a gospel minister. In time he has a family and many friends, but he also finds friction with a few of his parishioners. A young doctor grates at what he feels is the parson's interference in the scientific treatment of patients, and a mine owner resents Grey's protection of an old sharecropper whose small plot of land stands in the way of his continued mining. Grey must face a public health crisis and a lynch mob as a result, all seen and described through the eyes and memory of Grey's young nephew John. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

the movie will hold your attention and most of it will make you feel good
3 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stars In My Crown is a good family movie with older children. It is a movie which reminds us of our American history. It represents a time in America's past.It is both a dark chapter in history and a story of hope. It was one of Joel Mcrea's favorite films. Although the movie does not move at a fast pace, the movie will hold your attention and most of it will make you feel good. The characters in the movie are representative of many Americans, particularly in the South during the 1950s. It was courageous of the producers to produce a film like Stars In My Crown. The climax to me is about how love for one's fellow man, regardless of race, creed or belief, can change the outcome of hateful intentions. You won't easily forget this movie. It will in the end leave you with a hopeful message of love and belief in the goodness of mankind. Bring your popcorn and soda, along with your family, and enjoy the film, best enjoyed in the early evening or during a lazy afternoon.
