A rags to riches to rags story: From the 1889 Land Rush to the Dust Bowl of the 30s, "Sooner" is a Dust Opera that follows the hardscrabble Wade family through the extreme highs and lows of a cursed Oklahoma dynasty.
When I think back to my childhood, this movie stands out above all others. It first aired when I was 8 yrs old. I watched it every opportunity I had after that. The teasing Sooner encountered, esp the crow scene, connected with my own life experience of being teased endlessly.
The wonderment of Sooner at the fair also stands out in my mind. These scenes were so well shot that I remember feeling like I was see through Sooner's eyes and feeling her wonderment.
I wish this movie was available in video so that I could share it with my daughter.
