Storyline

This is a wonderful documentary, that shows the full scope of Earl Hamner Jr's talent. Most people know him as the real life "John Boy," but do not realize that he wrote for shows such as the Twilight Zone. I highly recommend this documentary, especially for fans of the Waltons. It will touch your heart, & bring tears to your eyes.

Portrayal of an intimate writer.
13 September 2015 | by tlennan-1See all my reviews

It seems that film and television are most frequently referred to as a "director's medium" or as "star vehicles". The foundation of any successful film or television show is excellent writing. This portrayal of Earl Hamner Jr. gives credit where it is due to the writer who has given the American public the warm intimate portrayals of family life that we love and identify with or wish we could identify with.

This film portrays Mr. Hammers great passion for writing and will strike deep chords with those who admire the power and eloquence of the written word.
