This is great movie for the whole family. It should be made available on DVD. Jason Robards reminds me of many of the older men in a small town. His "stump Juice" reminds of the dandelion wine people used to make. This movie shows the whole family working together during tough times. The boy learns to work hard and stop feeling sorry for himself. This is how Americans used to live. Respect, hard work, manners are how we were measured as kids. Every adult took the time to keep kids on the right path. This movie shows those times and makes you feel good. This movie is a classic on a par with A Wonderful Life and is certainly a collectible.
