    The Maisie films are usually a lot of fluff but this one bowled me over with its truth and its heartbreaking depiction of those who fled the Dust Bowl. These farmers couldn't get a break and just went from pillar to post hoping for something. anything, to change their lot in life. After losing the job she thought she had, Maisie throws in with a family of tenant farmers looking for gold in a gold rush area. If you can watch the Mother pray at night as the family nearly starves, and you don't feel it in your heart, I feel sorry for you. They work day after day until Maisie finds what she and the family believe is gold but they - just like the others who came - find their discovery isn't what they thought. Having nothing and needing water, Maisie prevails on a hard-hearted land owner, Bill, to allow them to set up camp and use the water on his land. Bill agrees and, after a long talk with Maisie one night, he gives great thought to what he can do. In the morning, he announces to the farmers that he wants to make a deal with them. It involves their working the land in exchange for his providing food and lodging and then, after a year, they will agree to his land becoming a partnership with them. The happy ending in this film is the farmers' good fortune but not Maisie's, as she moves on. That was quite a surprise. This is a bit of a tear jerker film at times but it's worth watching. I gave it two stars for the story and, of course, Ann Sothern who was a real actress who didn't get the accolades she truly deserved back in the day.
