  • A delight...from beginning to end Dec 10, 2009
    by 19Cedric29

    This is a GENTLE film...as warm as a quilt, and as comforting as a mother's hug, and I actually wore out my VHS copy...I love the music, the singers (Dick Haymes is ABFAB) and the actors....especially Charles Winninger, Fay Bainter and Dana Andrews. I also like the soft, rolling fields, and blue skies, and the Frake family's pride and sense of "self". It isn't like that now, and it probably wasn't then...but the spirit was, and we need to see more of it.

    My favourite part is the "mincemeat" scene. Being a mincemeat maker myself, I laughed until I cried... As Melissa Frake would tell you, the longer it ripens, the better it gets! (I use BUSHMILLS 10 YR. OLD IRISH!)
