I just happened onto this movie one Sat. afternoon while taking a break, and I absolutely could not get up to finish what I was doing until it was over. I hadn't ever seen the movie before , so it was a real treat. I told my husband about it that evening and after a few minutes he realized he had seen part of it years ago also. Only problem was neither of new the name, and it was not listed in the paper. I finally found out by getting on the computer.
Glen Ford's character was so powerful, tender, loving, caring, strong. His wife so typical of that of a preachers wife in that time, and the son, a country boy with so much insight and intelligence,maturity, and innocence all wrapped up in one.
I hope I get the chance to see this movie from beginning to end sometime. Some messages are so powerful it doesn't matter how old they are, they still can be applied to our lives today, next week, next year,etc..
