Robert T Loved it. It's a great wholesome family movie with a great (true) story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/27/22 Full Review Audience Member Ok laugh at me. I'm an old romantic, and I love some of these old movies. lol Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Warm piece of Americana with Susan as the new bride of country parson Lundigan and her travails learning the ways of his flock. She is subdued here but gets one oppurtunity to show off the Hayward moxie. A good family film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
