When the producers needed a vintage automobile for the film, they scouted in the shooting area and found Otis Mason in Westminster, South Carolina, who had restored a 1912 Overland to running condition that he had recovered from a barn. His vehicle was hired, and as no one else knew how to operate it, he appeared in the movie as the driver, with one line, "Yes, Ma'am." See more »
I refuse to believe in a God who inflicts pain and suffering and permits all the injustices that are in this world. My mind tells me that such a God is not fit to be spat upon let alone worship. Nor do I believe He give a man a mind and then condemn him for using it to think with, any more than He give a bird wings and condemn it for flying. That's giving Him a great deal more credit than you do, Mr. Thompson, for all your religion.

I had seen this movie 30 years ago with my Grandad in rural middle Tennessee and have searched for it any times since. However, I could not remember the name of it. I found it yesterday on TBN and it was all I had remembered it to be. The story as well as the scenery was first class. Many of the homes were still like that in Middle Tn when I first seen the movie. Based on the scenery, the story, and what my relatives told me of rural life in the early 20th century this appears like a pretty accurate portrayal. While life was simpler it was not without tragedy.
Well worth seeing.
