Set in 1947, The Thanksgiving Treasure takes place on the small Nebraska farm of the Mills family. 11-year-old Addie Mills (Lisa Lucas) is of the opinion that the purpose of Thanksgiving is to turn an enemy into a friend--just as the Pilgrims and the Indians did back in 1620. Addie hopes to mend the long-entrenched differences between her father (Jason Robards) and a cranky, lonely old man (Barnard Hughes) who lives down the road a piece. Thanksgiving Treasure was first telecast November 18, 1973. It was written by Eleanor Perry as a sequel to her Emmy-winning TV special The House Without a Christmas Tree.
