The Homecoming: A Christmas Story

The Homecoming: A Christmas Story is a 1971 TV movie pilot for The Waltons tv series. I tend to be prejudiced against sweet "heart-warming" stories, but I've loved this movie since it was first shown. I think last year was the year we got it on DVD. The Younger Son saw it with us then and passed on a repeat performance. (He's studying anyway. We knew he wouldn't want to watch this, and that's why we picked it for tonight.) The Daughter had never seen it before and liked it but was surprised that I did. Patricia Neal plays the mom in the pilot, and I much prefer her in the part rather than Michael Learned, who was in the tv series. Neal won a Golden Globe for the role.
