“LADDIE” — 1940 (“Laddie, A True Blue Story” by Gene Stratton-Porter)

I’ve read and own this delightful story. I was happy to find that it was made to a movie!

“Laddie Stanton (Tim Holt) lives on the farm run by his father John (Robert H. Barrat), with a mother and four younger siblings, while on the neighboring farm lives Charles Pryor (Miles Mander), with wife Anna (Mary Forbes) and daughter Pamela (Virginia Gilmore), recently immigrated from England. Laddie develops feelings for Pamela, whose demanding father makes no secret of his disapproval. ‘Little Sister’ seems to know everyone’s secrets, and even speaks for Laddie with Pamela when he’s right there (her tendency to blurt out confidences never seems to get her into trouble). Charles is a very strict military man, whose son Robert (Peter Cushing) has performed an undisclosed indiscretion back in England that led to their relocating to this tiny Indiana community. He looks down on the Stantons because they are farmers, taking pride in the soil which gives back so much, producing the goods that end up on everyone’s dinner table. It’s definitely an old fashioned story with universal appeal, played with believable warmth..”.IMBD
