I was eleven years old when I saw the premier of this movie.
21 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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
