When Jill's native school children begin to ride the horses on the Booth property, John drives up in his truck. A man helping the children says to John, "Hi, Joe." John then replies, "Hi, John." Obviously it should be the other way around. See more »
The Other Side of the Mountain movies are so underrated when it comes to love and romance. The girl just happens to be handicapped. Marilyn Hassett's Jill lost her fiance in a plane crash and her boyfriend before that couldn't accept her disability. So of course she'd be gun-shy about opening her heart again. When she runs away from John and they end up sharing their hearts at the second to last scene in the film, I cry every time I watch it. Great movies!
