A bit sentimental
16 September 2001 | by artzauSee all my reviews

Diane Baker never really got off the ground in her film career and this film certainly did not help. Not that it is a bad film. The story has been around and gone through a number of remakes about a young woman's fight against pollution at a time when we were all pretty innocent about environmental issues. Jack Ging, who aside from a few spots here and there, plays the young Amish male interest and veteran character actor Wallace Ford plays a local curmudgeon. The film drags in spots and the ending where Tess joins the Amish while one of the Amish girls goes modern is a bit unsatisfying. But, love conquers all, doesn't it? There's no video or DVD, so if it comes up on the late show, you guys might just want to let the ladies watch this one, as it has all the elements of a 60's chick flick.
