Here is a Motion Picture You May Not Dare To See And That You Do Not Dare To Miss. It has been magnificently made from James Agee's almost unbearably beautiful Pulitzer Prize novel and from the Pulitzer Prize play made from that novel. It is the story of the Jay Follet family. It is a story of all the kinds of love there are... the love between father and son, mother and child, male and female...the love of any human being for the place he grew up in and for the people he grew up to...It is a motion picture that will follow you home and stay with you all the rest of your days.

I was eleven years old when I saw the premier of this movie.
40 years have gone by since I saw "All The Way Home", the movie. When the World premier debut of this film occurred in Knoxville, TN at the Tennesse Theatre, I was fortunate to be included with my parents to meet Robert Preston at Knoxville's McGee Tyson Airport and travel with him to downtown Knoxville's Tennessee Theatre. Robert Preston played the part of Jay Follet, who in real life was Jim Agee, my father's uncle. I saw the Tad Mosel adaptation of Agee's "A Death in the Family", play "All the WAY Home" at the University of Tennessee' Clarence Brown Theatre last night and that made me long for a chance to see the Robert Preston version again.
I want to thank all those who have added these wonderful comments in the IMDb.
sincerely, john a
