An immigrant family faces tragedy in 1850s. Based on an article The Day They Gave Babies Away by Dale Eunson and Katherine Eunson. Starring Glynis Johns, Cameron Mitchell, Rex Thompson.
This is one of the saddest films I’ve ever seen. It is based on the true story of the Eunson family, who immigrated to Wisconsin and faced many hardships but ultimately prospered, until tragedy struck. It is a great film about frontier life and the strength of family love and promises. Get your hankie; this one’s a tearjerker, but definitely worth a watch.
