One of the better westerns
13 February 2000 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

A former drinker and womanizer, returned from the Civil War, comes home as a newly converted preacher. He takes up residence in the old parsonage with a high spirited young girl and begins rebuilding the church. He finds a lot of trouble along the way, mostly from the local store owner who resents the new preacher because he fought for the north. Lots of action and drama made for a very good picture and Joanne Woodward as the rambunctious Lissy stole the show. She had me laughing all the way through. 4 stars.
