You can see a smallpox vaccination scar on the upper arm of the murdered girls' father in the opening sequence of him running through the field. Vaccination was widespread in the USA by 1935, the time of the movie. See more »

We thought he was doped. Didn't we all think we was doped?
You didn't ask?

The length of the movie was perfect. It kept to the story to an amazing degree. The few changes didn't hurt the feeling nor the telling. The story itself is stirring and captivating. The casting of the parts and their portrayal were right on. This is one of the best movie versions of a Steven King novel I've ever seen, and I think I've seen them all. If you're prone to tears at a film, take extra tissues, you'll need them. The theater I was in was a mass of sniffles through the end credits. If you like fantasy/drama the film cannot be missed. There are some graphic scenes that may upset some, but this is Steven King. This is a movie I plan to add to my video collection as soon as the Letter Box version hits the shelves.
