Trivia

Lisa Lucas (Addie) broke her leg while filming this story. She took a fall from the horse "Treasure" as she was riding. The production was delayed several weeks and then a stand-in was used for at least one scene which took place in the cemetery. The shot was filmed in silhouette from the back, which turned out to be very effective. Also, in the scene where Grandma and Addie are doing the laundry, you will notice Lucas is sitting for the entire shot and her legs are never shown. This scene was possibly re-staged due to the broken leg. See more »

a wonderful follow-up to The House Without a Christmas Tree
11 June 2005 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The same cast that had previously appeared in the made for TV movie THE HOUSE WITHOUT A Christmas TREE was reunited for this Thanksgiving movie. They seemed to have picked up without a hitch.

This one focuses on the feud between two incredibly stubborn old farts--Jason Robards and Barnard Hughes. Apparently, Robards had dug a pond for Hughes and had never been paid and they'd been arguing back and forth about it for some time.

Robards' daughter, Addie, has her curiosity peaked by all this and bicycles by Hughes farm after school one day. There, she discovers he has a horse in need of care. Despite the NO TRESPASSING signs and his repeated threats, she approaches him and offers to take care of the horse if he lets her ride it. All this is done WITHOUT telling her father.

Later, she feels sorry for Hughes as he is all alone and the holidays are approaching. When she asks her father if Hughes can come for Thanksgiving, she is told a loud and firm NO! So, she has her dinner and sneaks a plate to her new friend.

What happens next is best for you to see for yourself. The movie is so real and poignant, you can't help but fall under its spell.
