Description
In Spencer's Mountain on DVD, Grandpa Spencer fathers nine boys in the shadow of the Grand Teton mountain bearing their name. His son Clay (Henry Fonda) marries Olivia (Maureen O'Hara) and has nine more kids, "all thoroughbreds." Now the eldest son is out of high school, eager for more in life. But college money is hard to come by.

The movie Spencer's Mountain has deep roots too. It's based on the Earl Hamner Jr. novel that later inspired TV's The Waltons. The pleasures of Delmer Daves' movie are as plentiful as the trout in its swirling streams. Fonda and O'Hara shine in a cast that includes Wally Cox, Donald Crisp and James MacArthur. Max Steiner supplies an evocative score. Breathtaking fields and forests add visual splendor. All these qualities enhance this beloved story of human values—and reaching for your dreams.

      This is a wonderful family movie w/some adult content that I can share w/my older teen-age grandchildren & tell them that this is how family life used to be "back in the day" when I was growing up.

                  On an evening at home, I took the chance to watch this when nothing else was on tv. I am a bit challenged when going from cable to the DVD player. So, I don't use it often. It was a very enjoyable movie to curl up under the blanket and just spend some time to myself. I have always loved this movie.

                        I like movies that have decent content in them. Little to no obscenities or graphic sexual scenes. I prefer to watch wholesome entertainment with stars that took pride in their craft.

                              This was the movie that the Walton's was fashioned after. This is way better though. The whole thing takes you through every emotion and you just love this family. This movie is a great one to have for your collection. It's better than you think.
