This is a story about family relationships, set in the time before and during the American Civil War. Ethan Wilkins is a poor and honest man who ministers to the human soul, while his son Jason yearns to be a doctor, helping people in the earthly realm. It is a rich story about striving for excellence, the tension of father-son rebellion, and the love of a mother that can never die.Written by

Excuse me, Parson. I've been thinkin', after the meetin' tomorrow, where are you gonna' go?
Rev. Ethan Wilkins:
We're going up into the hills, towards Tomkinsville.
That's what I thought. Gets kinda' cold up there at nights, this time of year. That boy of your'n ought to have a coat.
Rev. Ethan Wilkins:
Oh, he's all right. He's as strong as a bull.
Well, my man was strong as a bull, too. But he got the misery and died in no time. No time at all... Well, I want to give your boy this coat.
[Hands him an old, rustic-looking black coat]

First off I love most Jimmy Stewart movies Its a wonderful life,Harvey,The Man that shot Liberty Valance just to name a few. I first saw this movie on a classic channel but only got to watch the first 45 minutes or so and I had to leave. I didn't even catch the title so it took me awhile to run it down going through IMDb. Like one of the other reviewers said its whats wrong with America today. Do yourself a favor and watch this Movie excellent story keeps your attention all the way through.I just wish they made more movies like this today,The Guy that plays President Lincoln was excellent. I managed to find it only on VUDU which is Wal Marts PPV service, searched Amazon its only on VHS I sure hope somebody transfers this to DVD and some other old Titles I've been searching to find.
