Lonely old farmer falls for young, simple, country girl.
1 August 2006 | by (Hillingdon, England) – See all my reviews

I recall seeing this movie by chance on TV many years ago and have been hoping that one day it will be shown again, or at least available to hire or purchase. Without repeating the plot or the other useful comments already posted, I'll just say that this film left a lasting impression on me. I wouldn't call it a comedy, it was much more than that; although there were some amusing scenes, I remember it primarily as a portrayal of off-the-beaten-track country life with ultimately a tangle of emotions and a tragic, moving ending. John Mill's portrayal of the lonely farmer, whose state went from sober to legless and soft to nasty, was excellent. Yet I submit that the star of the film was Carol White, whose moving performance as the simple and comely country girl confirmed her talents that had first come to public notice in Cathy Come Home.
