Movie Info

Man of God Josiah Gray (Joel McCrea) is determined to bring religion to the people of Walesburg, a dusty southern town still healing from the Civil War. Though initially Josiah must hold his parishioners at gunpoint, in time he wins over the community and marries his organist, Harriet (Ellen Drew). As the years pass, a number of situations arise, including a typhoid outbreak and a hostile mob, in which Josiah must prove that God is the only force that can restore peace in Walesburg.

    Interestingly enough, this one from 1950 features an undercurrent all too prevalent in these modern times of a divided country. A small town is the scene in this heavily nostalgic play on "the good ol' days", designed to appeal to a longing for "simpler times", a place where most folks are just getting by, everybody knows everybody and events all go by pretty slowly. But a epidemic brings sad times ~ as well as a bitter argument between the town doctor and the local preacher. Which is the best way, science and new thinking versus tradition? The resolution is well-played, sympathetic and even if a bit slow, not completely unbelievable. Not bad.
