Review by Doug Broughman (posted on 12-Dec-2008)
This was a made for TV movie that is a must see for me every
year. The story takes place in depression era Virgina, with
the Walton family. (This movie could be called the pilot for the
TV series, THE WALTON'S. In fact, all of the children in this
movie went on to play their same rolls in the TV series.) There
is a snowstorm Christmas Eve, and the Walton family is worried
about their father making the long journey home for Christmas
safely. Patricia Neal gets top billing in the movie and a young Richard Thomas makes one of his first silver screen appearances. This is a great movie for getting the family together and watching
over the Holidays.
