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>

Pleasant, but naive family film
31 August 2009 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Seeing the names of Joel McCrea and the director Jacques Tourneur(together they made the excellent "Wichita"), I thought this would be a western. As a matter of fact there is one western scene where the parson (Joel McCRea) draws his two guns when they don't want to hear his sermon at the saloon. But mostly the film follows the style of those made for the whole family to see at a Sunday matinée. It is not that there is no sadness. Some people die from an epidemic fever, there is even an attack from a white hooded clan. But the conflicts are solved too fast to be really believable, in a hurry to give a positive feeling. But apart from that, this is a pleasant film to see, among its qualities a certain Mark Twain touch and the beautiful smile of Ellen Drew.
