Horace's father died of alcoholism when he was 12 and Corella has been married to a railroad worker (Pete Davenport) for seven years.

Ew-thats all I can say
24 August 1999 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

Lily Dale was an unimaginative and plotless waste of film. There was no character or plot development. We knew the whole lame story from the first few scenes on the train. If you are thinking of renting or buy Lily Dale I suggest you forget it-don't waste your hard earned money on this flop.
