"Christianity is fun... it's man's greatest joy and satisfaction"... sure it is! Canuck William Spence who about to graduate the University of Toronto in 1904 as a medical doctor, but he goes to a Methodist church one day, finds Jesus and decides to become a minister instead. This is news to his wife but she accepts his decision and they leave Stratford, Ontario for rural Iowa (currently living between Toronto and Stratford myself and having been to rural Iowa, I don't believe my wife would follow me! I apologize to anyone from Iowa...) The Spence family moves about and the years pass, town to town, wherever the Reverend feels he is needed he goes. It is a tough life, never having much money or a home they can call their own. At their lowest, the family finds their most difficult challenge, but will it be time for them to stay or leave for another parsonage... Excessive Godly music is heard throughout (as per usual in religious films in the 40s). March gives a fine performance as the thoughtful and hardworking, if also selfish and somewhat unethical Reverend (though I believe this is more a fault of the screenwriter) - I believe he was supposed to be a more noble character. His wife is so understanding though she is hard to believe! Traditional storytelling and filmmaking offers nothing new, but it is one of those entertaining 40s films with a strong cast of supporting players. Nominated for Best Picture at the 1941 Academy Awards.
