Quotes

Charlotte Dunterry: Stoney, why do you resent northerners so? I mean, the ones that come down here, after all they didn't fight the Civil War.
Stonewall Elliott: Cos' they only come down here to play, without any thought of the land. They play at being gentlemen farmers for a while and then go somewheres else; wherever it's the fad to go. One year it's the lowlands of Carolina, another year it's old farmhouses in Pennsylvania. This year it happens to be the smart thing to buy a place in Virginia.

This is a great film - it doesn't matter that the theme
23 December 2003 | by robpeters1951See all my reviews

This is a great film - it doesn't matter that the theme somewhat reminds you of another Southern-based film - or that characters are loosely similar to that other film - what matters is that my grandparents were extras in the picture at the very beginning! Grandma & Grandpa Hurt lived in Howardsville, Virginia (and so did my Father's parents, Grandma & Grandpa Peters) and that station was chosen to be the mythical Fairville, Virginia (over another nearby town to that town's chagrin). My Father's grandparents (Peters) are standing behind Fred MacMurray on the station platform as the train arrives in the opening sequence. My grandfather Hurt was off camera behind the same scene! Okay, so my Mother & Father told me this story - over and over again! But because of that story, my interest in film-making was kindled. I've found a copy of the film (on DVD no less!) but I'm still looking for a "clean" copy of the film or a set of 'reels' from a theater. It's a great film for sitting in front of the fireplace with a warm cup of cocoa and watching. (I also have one copy of a photo from my aunt Eleanor that was taken during a break in shooting that has cast and crew in it.)
