Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
When she becomes pregnant, Annie May Bonner (Alexandra Paul) is kicked out of the house by her wealthy, intolerant father Matthew (Ned Beatty) in this Depression-era melodrama. Annie May marries Jesse (Dee Law), the father of her baby and the son of Matthew's lumber foreman Byron Monroe (Brian Keith), but Annie May's father considers Jesse an undesirable. Even when Matthew's wife Rachel (Barbara Barrie) dies of heartbreak, the stubborn father refuses to allow Annie May and Jesse into the family. The happy couple soon produce four children who may never know their grandfather.
