Editorial Reviews

Who says you can't go home again? Throughout six post-series reunion movies, the Walton home still stands, "generous in its love, filled with memories, and always ready to welcome us." From the first gathering of the far-flung mountain clan in A Wedding on Walton's Mountain (1982) to the final goodnights in A Walton Easter (1997), these uplifting and heartwarming films are quality time spent with one of America's favorite TV families. Each film amounts to a Very Special Episode of the top-rated, Emmy-winning TV series, rich with family milestones (weddings and births), and crises that will test and reaffirm the family credos of hard work, common sense, and faith. Most of the original cast is back. The late Will Geer, as Grandpa Walton, is sadly absent, and Ellen Corby, who suffered a stroke in 1977, plays a diminished role as Grandma Walton. The character of John-Boy, the aspiring writer whose reminiscences of life on Walton's Mountain were the heart of the series, is absent in the first two films and is portrayed by Richard Wrightman in A Day for Thanks on Walton's Mountain. With all due respect, we know John-Boy, we consider John-Boy to be a friend, and you, Mr. Wrightman, are no John-Boy. No, that would be Richard Thomas, who won an Emmy for his iconic role, and makes a welcome return in A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion (1993), which jumps ahead nearly two decades to 1963, the same time frame as the third season of Mad Men. Suffice to say, different worlds, as witness the charming scene in A Walton Wedding (1995) in which the wedding party sings "Bicycle Built for Two" while seeing off John-Boy and his bride. There is a circle-of-life satisfaction to the final film in the set, A Walton Easter, in which John (Ralph Waite) and Olivia (the ageless Michael Learned) celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary, and John-Boy contemplates returning to Walton's Mountain for good. "There's so much more out there beyond Walton's Mountain," a no-good former boyfriend cajoles the now-betrothed Erin in A Wedding on Walton's Mountain. But as these six films, celebrations of home and hearth brimming with life and unconditional love, remind us, why would you ever want to leave? --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Honesty. Integrity. Family. Stories of a family's - and a nation's - yesteryear continue in six Reunion Movies. Set in the 1940s are A Wedding on Walton's Mountain (will Erin have a change of heart?), Mothers' Day on Walton's Mountain (honoring the person everyone turns to when crises arise) and A Day for Thanks on Walton's Mountain (with Robert Wightman as John-Boy). Taking place in the 1960s and featuring Richard Thomas as John-Boy are A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion (as a nation mourns the death of JFK), A Walton Wedding (no big-city Manhattan nuptials for John-Boy) and A Walton Easter (Happy 40th, John and Olivia!). Six warm Walton memories are yours to share. For fans of the family-friendly classic TV series, this 3-disc set features six made for television holiday-themed movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Waltons Movie Collection: The Final Goodnight November 6, 2009
Format:DVD
At last, after much anticipation, Warner Brothers is releasing the six TV movies that capped off this series once and for all. The first three were all aired in 1982, and the final three came out between 1993 and 1997. Richard Thomas and Michael Learned who had left the show while it was still going strong in primetime, reprise their roles as John-Boy and Olivia Walton in most of these movies. Olivia returns in the second one, and John-Boy comes back in the final three movies.

These TV Movies pick up practically where the final episode left off, and are as follows:

1. A Wedding On Waltons Mountain (aired Feb. 22, 1982)--Erin and her boyfriend Paul Matthews Northridge decide to get married, and why not on Valentine's Day? Cindy and Ben are expecting their second child, and Mary Ellen is in Medical School studying to be a doctor. Jonesy is about to open his veterinary clinic and Corabeth is playing matchmaker to the reverend, Tom Marshall. The entire cast is reunited except for Michael Learned and Richard Thomas.

2. Mothers Day on Waltons Mountain (aired May 9, 1982)--Mary Ellen and Jonsey are getting married, but an accident occurs that postpones the honeymoon. Will all be well? Cindy's wealthy mother shows up, making Ben feel like an inadequate father and husband, while their baby is born.....but is it too early? Aimee also returns but has she changed? Olivia Walton makes a special appearance.

3. A Day for Thanks on Waltons Mountain (aired Nov. 22, 1982)--Most of the family plans to be away for Thanksgiving, and this leaves Elizabeth feeling sad. However, John-Boy has writers block and leaves his girlfriend Jane in NY and comes back to Waltons Mountain with Jason.

5.0 out of 5 stars The REAL final season October 14, 2009
Format:DVD
At last we can complete our collection with the release of the 6 post tv movies which we can describe AS THE REAL FINAL (10nth) SEASON of this show cause the end of the story lines came with these 6 tv movies which brought the end to this famous tv series.
With a runtime nearly equal to around half of a regular season we can describe these movies as the final 10th (mini season) of the show.
The waltons gave us wonderful moments for 10 long years (1972 - 1981) and it's great to have this set together with the rest of the series in our dvd collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Walton Movie Collection February 15, 2010
Format:DVD
On January 26th Warner Home Video released "The Waltons: Movie Collection." The collection consists of six made for T.V. movies that spans the life of this classic family television from 1947 to 1969.

Though these movies are generally considered "reunion" films, the differences between the first three and final three are significant.

The set opens with "A Wedding on Walton's Mountain" which aired on February 22nd, 1982, just a little over seven months after the final episode of the series, and unfortunately picks up where the series left off in 1947. Sans Michael Learned (Olivia) and Richard Thomas (John-Boy), the story revolves around the impending nuptials of Erin (Mary Beth McDonough) to Paul Northridge (Morgan Stevens channeling a young Michael Biehn) and how the return of Erin's former love interest Ashley Longworth Jr. (Louis Welch takes over for Jonathan Frakes and over plays the confidence and smugness of the character) stirs things up. Unfortunately the Erin love triangle is not enough to carry the film, and thus there are numerous sub-plots, all of which are poorly written.

The Waltons was cancelled after nine seasons due to the lack of quality that it had established early in its run. The cast of children had grown, but their acting abilities were still raw, and they were simply not up to the task of carrying the series that now rested on their shoulders in the absence of the talented Thomas and Learned who had been a source of stability in the series. Ralph Waite (John) is a fine actor, but he had been relegated to the role of family advisor by the time the series ended. The writers had simply run out of ideas and the stories had become trite.

Format:DVD
As a big fan of The Waltons TV series long after they went off air, I was pretty excited to learn the movies would also be released, to help give me some closure on my beloved mountain family.

However, I must say, I was a bit disappointed. While most of the movies include most of the original characters, at least nominally, there are quite a few gaps in the storylines. Granted, the first three movies -- perhaps because they aired closest to the conclusion of the original series, as opposed to the other three movies, over a decade later -- seem to keep a bit closer to the true air of Walton-ness in both regards. And it's also probable that given the show ran nearly a decade, and then had some of its movies a decade after *that*, most likely not all the actors were available. Still, it seems that some plotlines could have been smoothed out a bit better; even a one-line mention by a present character could tie up loose ends easily.

For instance, in the second movie, "Mother's Day on Walton's Mountain," Mary Ellen and Jonesy finally marry. On their honeymoon, Mary Ellen is in a car accident, where she undergoes serious internal injuries and is told she will never be able to have children. Two movies later, in "A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion," Mary Ellen is the mother of two young children. Not a word is mentioned about how she came to have them -- rather strange, considering the bulk of a previous movie consisted of her angsting about not being able to give Jonesy his own biological children. Did they end up adopting? Was the doctor wrong? Did medicine advance over the years and help them conceive despite the injuries? Viewers have no idea -- and it would have been so easy for Mary Ellen to simply say, "When we adopted the children..." Mystery solved.

Why Isn't the First Movie ("The Homecoming") Ever Included in These...
Because the copyright holder is different - Warner Bros for the series; Paramount for the pilot film. You can get "The Homecoming" seperately, so there is no real problem.
