delightful!
11 January 2005 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

This picture is a great intro to Joanne Woodward with good dialog and solid performances by all. Van Heflin is perfect as the repentant womanizer and Raymond Burr is always a good heavy. I think Joanne W. is wonderful as the feisty young woman. As a tomboy, seeing the movie in my youth, I related to her character. Everyone's transformations and adjustments to life after the Civil War are believable. The only thing that is bothersome are the stagy sets. The rendition of the hymn "Holy, Holy,Holy" is a good American standard of the times. One of my favorite films but not seen enough on TV. Wish a DVD of it would be included in JW's classic collection with "Three Faces of Eve" and the "Long Hot Summer".
