      Bob Thomas Associated Press Nothing pretentious, it turns out to be a refreshing slice of country life. Jul 25, 2019 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation An indifferent "trouble on the farm" melodrama with a message...chiefly valued today for reminding us of what a remarkable child star young Natasha Zacharenko (Natalie Wood) was. Rated: 2/4 Dec 30, 2021 Full Review Josephine O'Neill Daily Telegraph (Australia) Artless. Apr 4, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      James C I really really liked the movie. Great story line and great acting. Brenning and Wood were excellent. I don't know why this didn't get better reviews. Hopefully my rating will boost the score some. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/24 Full Review Steve D Schlocky melodrama with no surprises. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/24 Full Review Nita O Excellent movie! Made me laugh, tear up, and got my dander up at times, lol. I'd watch it again. This will be a family favorite! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/03/23 Full Review Audience Member It was okay, Walter Brennan and Natalie Wood are great as always. Unique in being probably the only 4H-related movie out there. The picture quality isn't great and parts are kinda cheesy, but worth a watch for those that are into agriculture. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review andy h I thought it was going to be about something completely different in the beginning, but I'm glad it wasn't. Natalie wood is always cute and the best actor by far in this movie. The concept of 4H is interesting for the times, though it won't be a favorite among her collection for most fans given her wrist. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The American Classic starring a new to the screen Natalie Wood who held her own quite well. For a Farm Family Drama (so called B Film by many critics) this film was really good & surprisingly interesting. Walter Brennan (The greatest character actor) was great as the stubborn old school farmer. Unfortunately the version of tge film we had was very faded & washed out but the film is interesting & keeps you involved.
