Trivia

Getting director George Edwards to Wichita, Kansas for filming proved to be a difficult and costly process. Edwards feared flying so he started out to Kansas on a train. However, Edwards fell ill on board and ended up taking a cab from Arkansas to Kansas afterward. It cost $1,500 dollars. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Louise pushes her father, played by Ray Milland down the hill, you can see that Milland's stunt double looks nothing like him. He is a man with brown hair and a beard, when Milland was completely bald in the film. See more »

Great movie!!
14 September 2003 | by (Wichita, Kansas) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this drama. It is a little slow moving but is intriguing nonetheless. The music is a little awkward, but the acting is very good and the movie kept my interest throughout. The settings and background were also interesting. It's not the best movie I have ever seen but it is better than most.
