Trivia

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 »

Solid, Yet Not Quite Scriptural
7 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty good movie in that the main character was a solid preacher, not the flawed one seen in all modern-day films. The only chink in his armor was that he married an unbeliever, something a sincere minister (William Lundigan) such as the one shown here, would NEVER do.

Susan Hayward's character, the minister's wife, is annoying at times but at least she admits her weaknesses and doubts and then realizes the doubts were unfounded. However, her allegiance, even at the end with a quote from Scripture, is not to God but to her husband. She thinks her purpose in life is to follow him, not Him!

Interwoven in this story are a couple of touching stories of relationships that are transformed from hardened to soft with the patient help from the preacher. It's basically life in strict small Georgia town in Protestant church setting.

Overall, a nice story and good family viewing, as the cliché goes, but nothing extraordinary to be honest. Worth at least one look
