Mark (Matt Keeslar) is a young cattleman in Ireland. He loves a young lady of the area named Annie (Nancy St. Alban). Annie's father, however, is somewhat of a local terror and he is especially attached to Annie. Matt, therefore, has two goals. Find a good price for his cattle and find a way to convince Annie's father that he has what it takes to be a good husband for Annie. Are these attainable wishes? This is a lovely-to-look-at film from the Hallmark Hall of Fame series. The two stars are fresh and funny and old veterans, such as Patrick Bergen and Brenda Bleven, lend their support for good measure. Ireland's glorious splendors of landscape and town are on good display and the plot has twists and turns to keep the story flowing nicely. One might pick this one out of a bin of unsold films (as I did) and be completely satisfied after a couple of minutes of viewing. However, don't wait for the film to fall in your lap. Make a concerted effort to locate the film at the library or video store today.
