My wife & I have enjoyed this movie at least once per year since '81. The casting was just about perfect especially the youthful Diane Lane with her wonderful facial expressions. Conrad Bain really captured the character of President King when Brother Jacobs first turned to him and President King said "God has Spoken". Then after a moment of reflection Jacobs threw in the towel when he turned again and said "Amen". The plot was just right for the first viewing. Lets have a six hour miniseries exploring the break from the Mormons and then fast forward to the fifties with a little more of the "fire & brimstone" preaching. Yes of course" to a remake with about twenty percent more character development. Perhaps Diane Lane could be a sister wife in the remake and old Brother Otley could be trying to have his way with Naomi. I would also like to develop the idea of polygamy being "God's way" and see the old men trying to continuously justify it as such.
