Did You Know?

It can be inferred from the pilot episode, The Homecoming: A Christmas Story, that John Walton, Sr., died shortly after the events of this movie, the last installment in The Waltons legacy. It was stated in the pilot that John died in 1969, the same year in which Earl Hamner's own father died.See more »

A nicely done reunion., 5 July 2006
Author: EdCarpenter from United States

My opinion is that Kate McNeil works well as John-Boy's wife because she is different from the other actresses the character was interested in on the show. She comes across as a sweet and kind person who has a career and who truly tries to stand up to her meddling aunt in the previous reunion film. She also has blonde hair, as does the real Mrs. Jane "Earl" Hamner in real life. I thought the film wrapped up the story nicely if this is indeed, as it looks, the last Walton reunion film with the original cast. What happens to John-Boy in the end brings him "full circle" in my opinion as a character. We see him reach this place in his life after seeing him years ago for the first time as the struggling young writer.
