A great movie
I saw this movie in the 70's and have remembered it my whole life. It stuck with me because it's such a poignant story. It's a movie the whole family can watch. It was filmed in the mountains of NC and really reflects the honor of the people that were raised there and how they subsisted on whatever they could grow and get by on!
Where the lillies Bloom
- Carol Emmerling
I first saw this movie in 1974 when I was 14 and the movie had just come out. I fell in love with the movie ,why?? because it fully pro trade live accurately about in life in the Application Mountains at its time. Growing up poor I could fully relate to the children's plight and what they had to do to survive and stay together. There should be more movies like this . I would love to find the book as it is much better then the film nevertheless I would love to find a copy of that movie for my collection.
Life in Mountains of Appalachia
- linda stoneking
this was a real heart warming....funny......true to life movie about the innocence of children trying to survive off the land and stay together after the death of their father.......i once owned this movie and had given it away some years ago and would love to find it again.....it was one of those movies that i could watch over and over again.
Appalachian children must keep the death of their father, their only remaning parent, a secret from the welfare officials, school personnel, the property owners where they live and sharecrop and even the suitor of the oldest daughter, also one of the property owners. The middle daughter, who aspires to be a writer, tries to keep everyone in line as well as keep house, keep her grades up, and do wildcrafting for their living and keep the would-be lovers apart. Beautiful scenery and true-to-life hill country living. Harry Dean Stanton is believable and the girl called Mary Call is great.
