Taglines:

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.

11 February 2008 | by (Knoxville, TN) – See all my reviews

I found this movie available for download on http://www.cinemanow.com. The quality is not the best, but it is watchable and reasonably priced.

As a resident of the neighborhood about which James Agee wrote and where he lived, I find this movie particularly of interest. The producers of this film made a great choice for its authenticity when they chose to film it in the actual Fort Sanders neighborhood where the story took place.

The young boy in the film expresses genuine emotion, unusual for a boy of his age.

To see clips of the movie's premiere at the Tennessee Theater in Knoxville in 1963, check out the local NBC affiliate's archives at http://www.wbir.com.
