Determination, faith, and optimism are powerful forces that enable individuals to positively affect the lives of themselves and others. Christy, a captivating 1994 television series based on the book by Catherine Marshall and reminiscent of the Anne of Green Gables and Little House on the Prairie series, is the story of an idealistic 19-year-old woman named Christy Huddleston (Kellie Martin) who sets out for the wilderness of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee in 1912 on a mission to educate the children of the remote community of Cutter Gap. A well-to-do girl raised in the city, Christy is shocked and completely unprepared for the extreme poverty, ignorance, and superstitious tendencies of Cutter Gap's people, but resolves to persevere in her commitment to better the lives of her young students. Each day brings a fresh lesson for the children and a new struggle that inspires Christy to draw upon and re-examine her own faith while striving to disprove local superstitions and replace long-held animosities and prejudices with virtues like forgiveness and respect. Christy is surrounded by a handful of allies in Cutter Gap that include fellow missionary Miss Alice Henderson (Tyne Daly), whom she idolizes for her strength, resolve, and mentorship; Fairlight Spencer (Tess Harper), a local woman who offers Christy the rare gift of friendship; mission preacher Reverend David Grantland (Randall Batinkoff), a hard worker who immediately becomes smitten with Christy; and local Doctor Neil MacNeill (Stewart Finlay-McLennan) whose gruff manner and atheistic beliefs both confuse and excite Christy. Eventually, Christy finds she's fallen in love with both Reverend Grantland and Doctor MacNeill and embarks on a very personal journey toward maturity while simultaneously succeeding in her quest to educate the children of Cutter Gap and affect significant positive change throughout the entire community. (Ages 9 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Based on the bestseller by Catherine Marshall, Christy tells the story of an idealistic nineteen year old (Kellie Martin) who leaves the comforts of her city home to teach school in the impoverished Appalachian community of Cutter Gap, Tennessee in 1912. Strength, determination, and faith guide young Christy Huddleston through unforeseen difficulties, help her to gain understanding of the proud mountain people, and win her mentorship, friendship, and the love of two men.

162 of 162 people found the following review helpful By Bobby Underwood VINE VOICE on March 3, 2007
Format: DVD
This gentle and heartfelt drama was wholesome and substantive television for families. Based on the cherished book by Catherine Marshall detailing her mother's time in the Tennessee Smoky Mountains in 1912, it is the story of a young and exuberant city girl who comes to teach in poverty-striken Cutter Gap and the manner in which it changed her life forever.

The book was warm and wonderful and those like myself who loved it had doubts that the essence of it could truly be captured for television. It was a pleasant surprise when those doubts were proven to have no validity. It was faithful in conveying both the feelings and the atmosphere of the book and, for many, including myself, Kellie Martin will always be Christy Huddelston. Her wide-eyed and hopeful performance was perfect, and Tyne Daly added emotional depth as Miss Alice, the Quaker woman who had seen heartache before yet found the strength to carry on.

The wonderful Tess Harper portrayed the sensible and delicate Fairlight Spencer, who offered Christy the most cherished gift of those great mountains; her friendship. There was a wholesome and romantic glow to this series as the hardships these people experienced in their lives every day and the sometimes illegal means they used to survive came into conflict with the teachings of the young Minister, David (Randall Batinkoff), who is smitten with Christy.

But the older doctor who understood the people of Cutter Gap better may be the one Christy would find love with if she could hold on to the joy that brought her there. Stewart Finlay-McLennan had a nice turn as Doc Neil, who had some feelings of his own for young Christy. But it was the children and their teacher who took center stage as Christy faced opposition which kept some of the children away.

How I loved this series when it was being aired on TV ! I'm so glad it is finally being put on dvd (and the whole series to boot!) --- It's just too bad that they never finished the series completely, but instead just left us hanging in the last episode as to whom Christy would choose as her husband .... I know they followed up this story with some tv-movies later on with different characters, but it would have been great to see it finished with the original cast -- However, this is a great family show, well worth watching ! Buy it -- you won't be sorry !

Having greatly enjoyed the novel by Catherine Marshall, I had decided to give the tv series a try as well...

Many times, I've been disappointed; tv shows or movies based upon books often cut out significant parts or change things around, creating a completely different impression from the original work. However, this wasn't the case with the "Christy" series! First and foremost, Kellie Martin and Tyne Daly were perfectly cast in the roles of 19-year-old schoolteacher Christy Huddleston and Quaker missionary Alice Henderson. Secondly, the show generally kept true with the storylines and descriptions first brought to life in Marshall's classic novel, making it easy for fans to make the transition to the show.

If you aren't familiar with the story, the general premise involves the title character, a recent transplant from a wealthy North Carolina family, who has just arrived in the poor but proud community of Cutter Gap, Tennessee, in 1912 to teach school. It's Christy's first time on her own, and her eyes are certainly opened as she experiences the effects of ignorance, poverty and disease. As she struggles to convert the residents to her beliefs, they also teach Christy a little about faith, nature, love and other life essentials.

Often seen with Christy are David Grantland, a young minister who is desperate to win her heart; and Neil MacNeil, a native doctor who equally intrigues and infuriates the stubborn, idealistic schoolteacher.

My only complaint is that the series was so short-lived! In my mind, we could certainly use a show like "Christy" on the air. Who wants some vapid "reality" show when you can get a glimpse of life during an intriguing period of American history? Not me!

I'm so glad this is finally coming to DVD. It was such a shame that this show was cancelled so quickly. It was very charming and had such wonderful actors. It's the kind of show that you can watch with your family. Highly recommended!

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By C.J. Darlington on April 15, 2007

It was an interesting choice to transform the novel Christy into a tv series. With the expectation of millions running high, Christy made its debut in April 1994. Unlike a movie, the characters would have to take on lives of their own apart from the book (think Little House on the Prairie), which could potentially alienate its most receptive viewers---the readers of the novel.

If the producers had concerns about the public's reception, they need not have worried. The show was an instant success with the public, but unfortunately suffered in the ratings (due to poor time scheduling according to some sources) and only lasted two seasons. What success the show did have can greatly be attributed to its star, Kellie Martin, known for her work in Life Goes On, ER and now the Hallmark Channel's popular Mystery Woman. Martin, eighteen at the time, skillfully pulled off Christy's innocence and spunk to such a degree that she BECAME Christy in many viewers' minds.

"Only my father saw me to the Asheville station that Sunday morning in 1912."

When Catherine Marshall penned the first line of Christy some forty years ago, she couldn't possibly have known that an estimated 30 million people would read it. Christy was in Marshall's words "a story I have always wanted to write." Based on the real-life experiences of her mother and nine years in the writing, the novel was originally published by McGraw Hill in 1967. With more than 10 million copies in print, Christy is considered a landmark title in Christian publishing, but especially in Christian fiction.
