Editorial Reviews

From the woods of Wisconsin and the plains of Kansas to Minnesota, the Ingalls fight to build and hold onto a new home, facing the dangers of untamed wilderness on the American frontier of the 1870s. The Premiere Movie: This is the special double-length premiere movie that launched the Emmy Award-winning program starring Michael Landon, adapted from the famed series of books written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Seeking a future, homesteader Charles Ingalls (Landon) takes his wife, Caroline (Karen Grassle), and three daughters from their "Little House in the Big Woods" of Wisconsin to make a new start in Kansas. Remember Me: In this two-part episode, Oscar winner Patricia Neal (HUD) is Julia Sanderson, a dying widow who enlists the help of Charles Ingalls (Michael Landon) to find a single home for her three young children. With times so hard, no one wants the responsibility of a single extra child, let alone three orphans, but as time runs out, Charles discovers that miracles sometimes come from the most unlikely of places...

I grew up watching the reruns of Little House on the Prairie every day when I got home from kindergarten. My mom taped them, so my family owns 170 of the 200 episodes, from Episode 1, "Harvest of Friends," to the final episode, "Hello and Goodbye." Somehow, however, we missed taping "Premiere," so when I bought this DVD, I had never seen it. Well, I was a bit disappointed that in two hours the Ingalls family never reaches Walnut Grove (I was looking forward to seeing introductions of our favorite characters!), but I'm still very glad to own this gem. I know from experience that VHS tapes degrade with time and many viewings, but DVD will last forever. The pilot introduces Mr. Edwards (with a much thinner beard!) as well as the Ingalls family and includes some memorable moments between Pa and Laura. Probably the best scene of all is the classic "Errand for Santa," featuring a snow-caked Victor French who braves a blizzard to get his Christmas gifts to their recipients on time. Overall, a beautiful beginning to an endearing show.

This is the movie that started it all. A young pioneer family heads out of their home in the "big woods" not quite knowing what to expect. They settle on the Indian territory, make a home for themselves, and remain close as a family. Despite a few fearful encounters with Indians, wolves, and a fire upon their house, the Ingalls family remains tight in love. They celebrate their first Christmas in the territory, befriend the loving yet gruff Mr. Edwards, and experience many births, both in their hearts and in their horses. If you want to see a good movie on love and persistence, then by all means buy this one.

Out of all the TV shows I've seen, Little House on the Prairie grasps the concept of family values better than any other. Prairie life was obviously hard, but the Ingalls family masterfully tranforms it and uses family love and togetherness to make life on the frontier seem worth living. In this two-episode set, you get two memorable shows: "Premiere Movie" and "Remember Me." In the premiere show, the Ingalls leave the Big Woods in Wisconsin to make a better life for themselves. They settle on the Indian Territory in Kansas and struggle to triumph over encounters with Indians, fires, births, and new beginnings. An overall effective movie which shows how well these young actors and actresses clicked as the Ingalls family. They set the tone for a wonderful TV series with good, strong actors portraying this extraordinary frontier family.
Of the two shows in this set, "Remember Me" is my favorite. In fact, it is one of my favorites in the whole series. It's very heartrending and emotional, but it is absolutely wonderful. Now the Ingalls family is living in the friendly town of Walnut Grove. There, a young widow named Julia finds out that she is going to die. Knowing that her time left to live is very limited, she asks Charles Ingalls to help her find a home for her three children. Julia passes away before this task is completed, leaving Charles responsible for finding these three newly-orphaned children a place to live. As Charles realizes how difficult it is to find a family who will take on all three little ones, he is forced to make one of the most difficult decisions of his life. I won't give away the ending, but I will say that it is a wonderful ending that will leave you in tears.
Don't wait any longer to experience "Little House on the Prairie" if you have not already.

The description of this dvd states that the Premiere Movie plus the two hour episode Remember Me are included on this disc. However, when I received it I learned that only the Premiere Movie is on the disc. I'll keep it, since I love the show and it was still a good price, but the description made me believe I would be getting four hours of Little House, not two.

The Pilot film of "Little House on the Prairie" was what made Little House as it is today. It was first aired in 1974 on NBC-TV. Millions of fans gathered around the TV to watch it and now years later it is still a hit. Watch this great movie and enjoy it on DVD with your family for years to come! I have seen it several times and each time I see it I see somthing new that I have forgotten or that I have'nt seen before.

In this Dvd are the pilot episode of Little House of the Praire not a double lenght movie as the package says.
The transfer quality is good as well the sound.
The only thing is the absence of any subtitles or captions necesary for international customers like me.
I want to see also a good show featuring M Landon and Victor French Highway to Heaven released soon on Dvd.
Meanwhile I will collect most of the LHOTP Dvds.

I have been waiting a long time for "Little House" to come to DVD format! After I heard amazon.com had Little House DVDs, I rushed out and order the "Pilot"-Little House DVD! It is very good and if you are a big "Little House" fan and have a DVD player then go out and buy a copy of this DVD today, before they go out of stook!! It's worth buying if you are looking for a good movie with a good christian kind of family!
