Did You Know?

Goofs

The railroad passenger cars are of a more recent vintage ('fifties/'sixties) than what would have been available in 1944/5. Not even sure if the engine is era-appropriate. See more »

Quotes

Marcia Davidson: [gazing out at the desert from a hill] I love it up here. It's magical. It's like something God would do if He had the time.

Alternate Versions

In what was a standard practice by Universal Studios, one version was released in theaters, another version was broadcast on television. The differences include: the theatrical version had no voiceover narration and ended with a promo for the Universal Studio tour, the TV version had substantial voiceover narration by the lead character as an adult (similar to "The Waltons") and no tour promo.

I have never forgotten this film
6 January 2000 | by marchill1See all my reviews

I saw this film out of boredom at my small town theater in 74 and it left a lasting impression on me. I have not seen it since but all the images live on in memory. I can only hope the good people at Universal have the wisdom to release it on video or God willing on D.V.D. I can only hope that you too have experienced this film.
