Spencer's Mountain DVD

SKU ID #317127
$5.98
In Spencer's Mountain on DVD, Grandpa Spencer fathers nine boys in the shadow of the Grand Teton mountain bearing their name. His son Clay (Henry Fonda) marries Olivia (Maureen O'Hara) and has nine more kids, "all thoroughbreds." Now the eldest son is out of high school, eager for more in life. But college money is hard to come by.

The movie Spencer's Mountain has deep roots too. It's based on the Earl Hamner Jr. novel that later inspired TV's The Waltons. The pleasures of Delmer Daves' movie are as plentiful as the trout in its swirling streams. Fonda and O'Hara shine in a cast that includes Wally Cox, Donald Crisp and James MacArthur. Max Steiner supplies an evocative score. Breathtaking fields and forests add visual splendor. All these qualities enhance this beloved story of human values—and reaching for your dreams.

      When movies were great and anybody could watch and enjoy good acting, good plot and script without having to have CGI and special effects. Nice to know that what you are watching is the real thing.

        Great movie! I had watched "The Waltons" years ago and was curious about this movie. It's a story you don't see anymore; wholesome; about family values and sacrifice. Henry Fonda and Maureen O'Hara were great and even Wally Cox as the preacher. I'm surprised TCM doesn't put it on. It's a perfect family-type movie and especially during the holidays.

          My family saw this movie about 50 years ago and we can reflect upon life at the same time as the movie was produced. It is a 'family movie' and we also enjoyed the TV series, the Waltons which was a spin off of this movie.

                    This is a wonderful family movie w/some adult content that I can share w/my older teen-age grandchildren & tell them that this is how family life used to be "back in the day" when I was growing up.

                                On an evening at home, I took the chance to watch this when nothing else was on tv. I am a bit challenged when going from cable to the DVD player. So, I don't use it often. It was a very enjoyable movie to curl up under the blanket and just spend some time to myself. I have always loved this movie.

                                      I like movies that have decent content in them. Little to no obscenities or graphic sexual scenes. I prefer to watch wholesome entertainment with stars that took pride in their craft.

                                          This is one movie (among many) that I had to have in my collection. Henry Fonda, Maureen O'Hara, great performances.
