Editorial Reviews

Women lawyers? Women drivers? Women voters? The Yancey family of Lynchburg, Virginia, grapples with strange new ideas in this endearing film based on Rebecca Yancey Williams' memoir of growing up in the early 1900s. Much more than the suffragette movement upsets the Yanceys' well-ordered lives, from young romance to a sensational murder trial to that amazing contraption the automobile. Frank Morgan (The Wizard of Oz) stars as the Yancey paterfamilias, Lynchburg's principled D.A.; Spring Byington (Little Women) is his gentle wife, much mystified by modern goings-on, and Kathryn Grayson, with her exquisite face and even more exquisite soprano, plays a Yancey daughter in this tender valentine to a bygone era.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This movie is a piece of classic cinema and Virginian history. I enjoyed it as a child, and I bought this DVD to see it again. I am glad that I did. It is humorous, sad, happy, and heart-warming. Frank Morgan's performance is wonderful. It is a classic for the Lynchburg City area and the Forest, Virginia area in Bedford County. I would recommend this classic, showing Southern culture in the early twentieth century.

Simply lovely story about a simpler, lovelier time in America. I disagree with people who feel is is slow going or dull. My family loved this movie. True it's not action packed or sensual, but the story is charming, the acting convincing and the clothing gorgeous! We loved how the family seemed like a FAMILY. Kathryn Grayson was beautiful as always but Frank Morgan stole the show giving the most convincing performance of the Vanishing Virginian. He generally drives me crazy as he nearly always plays the most annoying parts in movies, however this one he was given a role where he actually got to prove he possessed real talent. Truly enjoyed this movie!

A nice assembled cast unfortunately does not make a great movie. This is a family drama/comedy with a little social or civic responsibility moralizing in it. The problem is mainly that the main attractions of a young Kathryn Grayson and stalwarts like Morgan and Byington don't really get to be very interesting. By the end you are supposed to have some real affection for the family (Morgan in particular) but it is mostly a nice little nostalgia piece. Wish it has a little stronger story but they tried to throw together too many plot lines without really anchoring on one here. See it if you want to catch a young Grayson or you like Frank Morgan but don't go in expecting "Life with Father".

My order arrived in today's mail in perfect condition and I can't wait to watch it again. I saw it on TCM in the past couple of weeks and really enjoyed what I saw.
