Customer Reviews

Excellant story, very moving.
C. Birchem
On the one hand it probably was a bad decision to watch a movie like this when I was emotionally "on edge."
J. Norberg
Every Christmas as a little girl the women in my family gathered to watch this movie.

Format: DVD
WARNING, SPOILERS, etc.

This DVD's cover art, which is original to the movie's release over fifty years ago, has a tagline that reads: "Six kids on a true and wonderful adventure!" This is one of the most misleading teasers in cinematic public relations history. It has the reader imagining a sextuplet of young ones perhaps sledding on particularly icy mountains or facing down some Scrooge-like, anti-Christmas archnemesis. In fact, it's about children losing both parents to highly contagious diseases and having their family rent permanently asunder.

This tale is based on a true-life story set in Wisconsin. Robert and Mamie Eunson (Cameron Mitchell and Glynis Johns) are Scots who have just landed in America (the year is 1856), having been invited there by Mamie's uncle. They arrive in the tiny logging village of Eureka, only to be informed that both uncle and his cabin have been incinerated in a house fire. The Eunsons are assisted by the friendly locals in reconstructing the house and Robert takes to tipping timber. It should be noted Mamie is heavily pregnant upon their reaching Eureka; she delivers baby Robbie soon after the cabin is completed. Robert eventually starts a successful boat building business and Mamie gives birth to five more children: Jimmy, Kirk, Annabelle, Elizabeth, and Jane. The Eunsons are prospering and happy--until little Kirk is diagnosed with diptheria. Mamie and Kirk are quarantined while Robert takes the other children away. The boy recovers, but the goodbye kiss he gave Dadda before his departure proves fatal, and Mr. Eunson succumbs.

Mamie takes to working as a seamstress and Robbie becomes the man of the house. Things stabilize, but only briefly: tired and work-worn, Mamie contracts typhoid.

All Mine to GiveI first sought this movie when I was about 14 years old. Today I'm 55 and still have it in my head as the best movie ever. My older brother and I cried every time during the five times we sought this movie on TV back home in Brazil. I looked for it under it's name in portuguese " em cada coração uma saudade^ which has nothing to do with the original title, but it gave me the name in english ( thanks to the internet ). I want to see it again, in english this time, to see how much I cry. I will get my 15 year old daughter and her friends to watch this with me to see their reaction compared to mine some forty years ago. I highly recommend this. If it stayed in my mind for forty years, it must be great.

It's about time someone released this on DVD. This story is loosely based on a true story in Wisconsin. Everyone should watch this once to see how a young person has to put himself to the side and make sure that his brothers and sisters are placed in proper homes on Christmas Eve after his mother died. If you have a heart and soul, you "will" have a few tears running down your face. Buy this and watch it on Christmas Eve instead of the other garbage on television.

I can't stop thinking about this movie. What a story! And then to find it's a true story! I went to the health club just before Christmas and was was doing my workout while plugged into a tv with my earphones on when this movie had already started on Turner Classic Movies. I had never heard of or seen this movie before, or heard of the book about the same entitled "The Day they Gave Babies Away". As the movie went on I couldn't stop watching it. I ended up watching the whole thing while on the tredmill. This movie just captivated me and my emotions. I didn't want to stop and miss it so I kept exercising. My legs were killing me when I got done with my work out needless to say after over two hours of watching this movie. I have been telling my husband and children about this movie ever since. How could I or my family never heard of it? This should be a Christmas Classic and more publicized than it is. It teaches such a lesson and tells such a story. What tough couragous people and children in those days! Adults and children often died young and being there were no adoption agencies in the pioneer days... just neighbors helping neighbors, this kind of thing was common place. For a 12 year old to be given the responsibility and shoulder the burden of placing his siblings with homes after his parent's death is something to be said of the quality of people in those days. We can all learn a lesson in this story. I just can't fatham pulling my sister or brother around in a sled in the dead of winter trying to find them a good home... following my dying mother's wishes. That's a heavy burden for anyone let alone a 12 year old. Just a good movie Christmas time or anytime. Not junk like some of the stuff out there. This movie should be made available in DVD. The VHS price is too unaffordable for most as well.

All Mine To Give was released in my adolescence. I have watched the movie several times and each viewing needed an abundance of tissues. I find it alluring to view several actors/actresses in their earlier years.

This film is an accurate depiction of frontier life; the personal and family values that molded this nation through its infancy. I find it refreshing to know of a time when neighbors and most in the small community could be trusted.

I highly recommend this movie as an adventure, romance, drama. Of the few movies I would have in VHS format (not is DVD yet)in my personal library, this is one.
