Tod and Buz, working in rural Pennsylvania as handymen at a chicken ranch, become involved in the drama between the ranch's family matriarch and oldest son versus the visiting widowed wife and child of the youngest son. The family blames the widow for the son's death and are suspicious and resentful of her coming. Written by
Tod and Buz are working on a chicken farm in Pennsylvania but aren't liking it too much. Their employer is a hard-boiled old lady, (Beulah Bondi), with a son, (Pat Hingle) who sees everything through the prism of the Old Testament, which he constantly quotes. The son of the family somehow wound up in Stockholm, where he fell in love with Inger Stevens, (who wouldn't?), but died before their son could be born. Now she's come to town with her baby to meet the family. Cold-hearted Mama thinks she's just a gold digger and that the baby probably isn't even her son's and Hingle thinks she's a sinner who must be punished. The boys disagree and hang around long enough to hold things together until the matriarch softens. Ol' Pat will just have to get used to having Inger and her kid around.
It's a good drama with strong performances, especially by Inger and I liked the reason the old lady gave for her sticking around.
