Set around the turn of the century. Jacob, a widowed farmer with two small children, places an ad in a paper for a new wife. The ad is answered by a spinster in Maine, who writes letters to them and describes herself as "plain and tall." And she takes a trip to Jacob's farm to see if she can make a difference. Written by
A long search was made to find working steam engine for Sarah's arrival. One was found at the Sturh Museum in Grand Island, Nebraska. The train was built in 1908 by the Baldwin Locamotive works. Unfortunately, the train needed extensive repairs before it's fires could be stoked. A timely contribution from the Sarah, Plain and Tall (1991) production saved the day. However, the train has been preserved and is on display at the towns museum. See more »
I had always heard good things about this film but never got around to seeing it. My 8 year old daughter loves books on the prairie life and we saw the video at the library so we watched it and we were both so moved, so impressed. A lovely film, wonderfully acted - Walken is a nice surprise - after a long, Hollywood career playing weirdos and sickos - he gives a fully realized, delicate, heartbreaking performance as a widower Kansas farmer. The children stay away from cliched, hammy acting and the whole thing is touching and sweet.
