Movie Info

Set in Georgia's beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains at the century's turn, this sugary slice of American pie chronicles the joys and travails experienced by a country preacher and his citified wife as they move to a remote community to do their good work. While there, each of the couple is tested. The preacher must reassess his fate when a neighbor drowns, and the wife must accustom herself to the rustic quiet of country living. A terrible epidemic again shakes the preacher, but fortunately serves to renew his faith and that of his parishioners.

Audience Reviews for I'd Climb the Highest Mountain

Warm piece of Americana with Susan as the new bride of country parson Lundigan and her travails learning the ways of his flock. She is subdued here but gets one oppurtunity to show off the Hayward moxie. A good family film.
