This movie was filmed in the actual neighborhood where Agee lived as a boy in Knoxville, TN. Although the old Agee house was torn down during production, a portion of it was shipped to New York for filming of interior scenes. See more »

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.
