There were so many finely crafted mini-movies in the early days of television, when young hopefuls on the way up and trusty veterans from the golden days of Hollywood studios collaborated on 30-minute stories to feed the ever-growing demand for TV time.
This is one of them. A quirky and charming tale from William Faulkner with a quirky and charming performance by the very talented and overlooked Stella Stevens.
As someone raised in the South, this is one of the few media works I've seen that captures southern rural culture without defaulting into tired stereotypes. Hugh O'Brian as the leading man and the direction by Richard Irving (some shots I can still freshly recall over a half-century later)gave additional strength to this beauty of a micro-movie.
