Goofs:
Factual errors: When Marty first arrives at the Davis homestead and Clarke offers her some ham, as she picks up a piece it can be seen that the piece is spiral sliced ham. The invention and patenting of the spiral slicing method for ham wasn't until 1949 by the founder of the Honeybaked Ham company.See more »

"First class movie" for the whole family; of the caliber of the late Michael Landon and the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie productions!!, 28 December 2003
Author: flsonshine

Good job Michael Landon Jr.-your dad would be proud. It appears that you are following the legacy of your father, in producing and directing good television entertainment that can be shared by the whole family. This movie reached all kinds of emotions in me to the point that I actually felt I was a part of the movie. All the actors did excellent work in portraying their characters and their personalities. I suppose the biggest surprise to me was that the roll of Clark Davis being portrayed by Dale Midkiff of "Elvis and Me." If showed me that if the actor is really talented, he (or she) can do justice to any role, even the most unlikely or unexpected. But it is important to say that it is because each of the actors did an excellent job in portraying their characters, that this movie was so believable and memorable. The movie is of the caliber that we expect of the Hallmark Hall of Fame movies, even though it wasn't. I hope we can count on many more movies of this caliber because there is an audience for it....and I too, would like to see a sequel to this movie, "Love Comes Softly."
