I saw this movie but once many years ago when it was first released. It is a difficult movie to find, and I wonder what mystery surrounds the movie itself as to why it is a rare find. I say for those of us whom have the chance to get it do so as it may become one of the rarest movies to ever be found in the future. I know there are some controversial subjects within the movie that may have made it an "undesirable" movie to market,.....such as sterilization (castration) at asylums for young orphan boys. Whatever the reason, the movie was well acted by Mark Harmon and his supporting cast. This movie will leave you touched deeply and probably like myself and others; will not escape your memory any time soon. Brilliant and Touching, this is one that should be kept locked up and preserved indefinately.

If you don't cry at the end of this movie, you are a block of cement. I saw this movie in 1988 and I still tear up when I think about it. Simply a masterpiece.

It has been many years since this made for TV movie was aired. However, I remember it as vividly today as when I saw it for my first and only time, nearly 20 years ago. The fathers' desperate struggle to retain his four sons after the loss of his wife; as well as his dealings with an unsympathic court system, will leave you stunned. The system itself really should have been on trial. In the end, the father lives up to the promise he made to his four sons; but the abuse endured by the boys at county homes, before their father successfully reenters their lives, is as devastating as anything you'll ever see in film. This exceptional TV drama is based on a true story that occured during the great depression. It is the most moving television film to be made since Brian's Song.

For anyone who has even the slightest glimmer of compassion, a unique and gifted portrayal by Mark Harman of Elmer one man who against all the odds stacked against him, eventualy after many years re-unites the family he lost.
The viewer is taken back to 1920s America and the bakward attitudes of the establishment who do not stop to consider each case before them.

Based on a true story you are taken on the journey of a loving father and his four sons through the worst nightmare that could be imposed on them.

This film is worth watching again and again.

I saw it for the first time about 18 years ago, when I was 14, and I saw it again a couple of times later. I've always wanted to buy this movie, but since I saw it in Spanish and the title was different, and I didn't remember any of the actors, it took me a while to find it. At last I did in Amazon.com but I was a little disappointed it hasn't been released on DVD. Anyway, I ordered the VHS version and at the time of writing it hasn't been delivered yet, but I'm sure when I see it again I will cry as much as I did 18 years ago. I will lend this movie to all my friends, and I would recommend it to anyone else. It's really one of the best movies ever filmed.

This movie is one of the most heart-touching films I have ever seen (based on a true story). Mark Harmon (who plays the father) goes to extreme lengths to get his boys back when an obvious "screwed-up" child services system had them taken away after the death of their mom. What the boys endure after being placed in the "system" is nothing short of cruelty. One word of caution - make sure you have plenty of tissues handy. The water-works will flow for sure!

Just as one viewer said, the last time I saw this movie I was about 13 years old. I cried my eyes out. I could not believe how touching this movie was. I saw it once and out of all the movies I've seen in my life time, (probably close to a million since I'm a movie buff)this is one of the few movies that I will always remember. I didn't know it was a true story which makes it even more profound. I would love to see the movie again I'm sure it will be just as good as the first time if not better. I love a good cry!
