This is one of those films that practically never plays on TV -- the last time it was on TV that I know of was back when American Movie Classics (AMC) was still a non-commercial films-only channel....that long. And to the best of my knowledge, it was never released on videocassette. So, I had little or no hope of ever seeing it on DVD. It's a delightful film -- if you ever saw it years ago and are asking, "Is it as good as I remember?"....yes, it is.

I've got a whole list of old movies that haven't been out on DVD yet....this one coming out gives me hope for the others.

The story is excellent but the quality of the dvd is very poor - those who did the transfer from film to dvd should be re-trained
on how to make an acceptable copy. This dvd is so dark that most of the scenes have little clarity. When I first saw this film
on tv many years ago it was in black and white and very clear to view. The current dvd needs to be redone. Hopefully this dvd
will be redone and made more viewer friendly. In its present state I wouldn't recommend this dvd to anyone ! Jim Mathes

I first saw this film in 1997 in a film class and fell in love with it. It's a very sad and depressing film, just like I like 'em. The transfer to DVD has made the film very dark and it's hard to see the actors. Having said that, I would still buy it. What a great commentary on living a simple life.

This is the story of a young ladies ability to deal with survival in an up and coming town in Illinois. She is tricked by her new husband into agreeing to live there, until they can save enough money to go to Chicago. Her husband played brilliantly by David Wayne, is secretly planting roots in this small, off the beaten bath community. Nellie discovers her husband's secrets and runs away. This is the turning point in the film which is essential to the lives of the family and striving community she leaves behind. Definitely worth watching.

The movie was a great as I recalled from my viewing in the early 1950's. My regret is that this video was not remastered. The scenes were so dark and discolored that viewing was difficult. This was a 20th Century Fox production. I have noticed before that Fox DVD products do not measure up to the quality of MGM or Warner Brothers With the technical programs available now, there is no acceptable reason for such inferior reproduction.

I remember first seeing this movie when I was very young, probably about 9 or 10 (in other words, over 45 years ago). Now, to watch a movie at that age and to have it stick in your mind for this long as being a good movie, there has to be something special about it. While my memory was a bit fuzzy on just what it was precisely about this movie that causes me, even all these years later, to still remember the title and to remember it was a movie I liked, I bought it anyway, just to watch it once again and perhaps spark those memories back to life. I am very glad I did. I still love watching the progression of the town, and the people along with it, some for the better, some not so much, but all done with a certain nostalgia without the usual schmalz that can so often ruin these travels back down memory lane. This story is more hard edged, with its share of petty hatred, manipulations, and yet also close caring relationships as well. These are all played out against the progress of our great society, with glimpses of our greatness, while not bothering to hide some of the warts as well. This is a movie that young and old can still appreciate and is well worth the price of admission into a small glimpse of America's great past including some of the accompanying growing pains.

This is one of my all time favorite films and I have a 30 year old copy from tv that is better than this disc. 20th Century Fox better get on the ball if they ever want me to purchase another one of their dvds. This one is pathetic (dark and murky).
Give it a wide berth

Film arrived in perfect condition, however, THE ENTIRE BEGINNING OF THE FILM WAS BADLY TRANSFERRED COLORWISE. THE TV WAS ADJUSTED AS TO COLOR, BRIGHTNESS and EVERYTHING ELSE WHILE THE FILM NEVER COULD BE CORRECTED COMPLETELY. THE COLOR RED WAS ALMOST NON-EXISTANT, YET HEAVILY USED IN THE CREDITS AT BEGINNING. BAD TRANSFER, otherwise, ok story. Both Jean Peters & David Wayne always rose to the occation no matter the film.
