Trivia

The hauntingly beautiful background music in the movie was mostly Norwegian folk songs - Bla Tonar Fra Lom & Jenta I Saueflokken and although, the "Plain People" in the movie appear to be something like Amish or Mennonites - there were no Norwegian settlements of this kind in the US. Most of these groups came from Germany & Switzerland. Most Norwegians coming to the US during this time period were Lutherans. Also, the hymn they sing during the barn religious ceremony was sung in Norwegian. See more »

Goofs

When Johnny first appears, he, Rebecca and Benjo are all in fields close to the house that are covered in snow. Moments later as the doctor arrives, the snow has largely disappeared and is seen only in patches. See more »

Best western and best romantic movie ever!
10 August 2005 | by mariondennis1See all my reviews

I had no idea Tim Daly could act in this type of movie, and I hope he does so again and again. Beautifully acted, directed, photographed, and edited, it has become my favorite movie of all time. The other women I've watched it with (my daughter, sister, friends) all were as enthralled as I, and all plan to buy the DVD also. The love story will bless your heart. Why can't Hollywood understand that there is an audience for this type of movie? I showed it to my 8 yr. old granddaughter (not all of it of course)and even she "got it." My husband and I watched it on the Hallmark channel twice. He loved it too, as he easily saw himself as the gunfighter, Johnnny Gault. Is there anything we can do to influence movie makers to make more movies like this one?
