The Howards of Virginia (1940)

Rated NR

This movie is based on the book, The Tree of Liberty by Elizabeth Page. I enjoyed this story of a Virginian farmer who marries a wealthy plantation owner’s sister. It’s a story of class and culture as the two collide in the marriage. As the years pass and the couple of bear children until the war with England breaks out. This causes a bigger rife between the couple. The story is great despite the flaws and this isn’t Cary Grant’s best performance. He is still great to look at, though, and the story concludes all is well.
