I like this film.
15 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It starts out with a guy,and his family who have worked all their lives to get ahead,and he loses his job. A lot of people are going through that now. George Kennedy,and Vera Miles do a real good job of trying to keep the marriage together through tough times. This shows how what happens to one person effects everyone around Mr. Kennedy.The movie must have been shot in not very many locations,as the back yard is seen in most of the movie.You have to remember this film was made back when the story was more important than the "special effects" films that are being made today. It had a good ending. I like movies with good endings.I haven't seen it in a long time. Would like to find it on DVD.
