|Widower and his kids move and start a new life.||Old Movie Buff 08/16/2010 |
| Beautiful story about a 50-something widower (Walter Brennan) and his 4 kids starting over after the loss of the wife and mother. The family faces life-like scenarios of intra-family turmoil brought on as each child demonstrates the need for individual freedom within the conundrum of the tight-nit but growing family. Walter Brennan is the iron-willed father who, while running from the reality of his children's journey to adulthood and the eventual empty nest, is forcibly removed from his leadership position by a farm accident, leaving the children to make the tough decisions necessary to save the newly purchased farm. Challenges galore face the family, as neighbors and the 4-H step in to help. This movie is heartwarming and extraordinarily touching.|

| Remembering this movie was made in 1949, I was charmed by the picture of life as it used to be. Walter Brennan is a character you love to hate and love to love at the same time. Natalie Wood is as charming as ever and though the story line is a bit thin and the ending predictable, it is a feel good bit of fluff . Wlater Brennan and Natalie Wood are a good combination for the black and white cinema.|
