Storyline

Two rustic families, headed by patriarchs Laban Feather and Pap Gutshall, are feuding. At first, it is comical, with just the sons of the two families playing tricks on each other. But soon the Feather boys decide to kidnap a girl. She turns out to be innocent bystander Roonie Gill, not the made-up girlfriend "Lolly Madonna." As events escalate, Zack Feather and Roonie fall in love and try to bring the others to their senses. Will Roonie discover Zack's dark secret, the reason for the painful feud between the two families which once were close friends? Written by Dan Kuttner (KutRite@yahoo.com)

Quotes

Roonie Gill: My name is Roonie Gill. I was just changing buses on my way to Nashville. Actually, I didn't care much where I was going. It just felt good to be on my own for the first time. I never heard of the Feather family or the Gutshalls before that. I found out later that Ludie Gutshall had planted a postcard in the Feather mailbox to get them away from the still. He signed it Lolly-Madonna - and that's who they thought I was. By the time I knew what was happening, there wasn't much I could do about it...

I wish this movie was available on VHS or DVD.
24 September 2001 | by dandeepoetSee all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was a boy and it had an indelible effect on me. I am 41 years old and I still remember how its simple folk and their seemingly insurmountable problem touched me. Like another reviewer I also recall the score as being perfect. See this movie if you can. I am only sorry it is not available on VHS or DVD. I would surely buy it.
