Movie Info

When his impoverished past is uncovered, Matt Howard (Cary Grant) is promptly fired by the Peytons, a wealthy family in Williamsburg during the Revolutionary War era. Undeterred, Matt returns to court the family's daughter, Jane (Martha Scott), and the two marry and raise a family in the Virginia backwoods, infuriating the Peytons. The birth of a crippled son results in years of tension between Matt and Jane, and, when Matt decides to join the army, Jane makes a stunning decision.

    A good cast and handsome production but there wasn't enough of drama to the Revolutionary War they had to throw in a family soap opera too?

    This was on very late the other night, so I watched most of it, but I didn't get to see the end, I was too tired. Grant is energetic and sexy in this historic film of a man who is pursuing his dreams in America, and the wife from an aristocratic background that conflicts with his lifestyle. I liked this movie so far, but I really need to see how it ends, I hope they play it again sometime.

    This is a solid movie that stars Cary Grant. The basic story is about a man named Matt Howard from Virginia. Also set before the American Revolution the Howards build a life and want the best for their country. A decent period piece. Grant is solid in the main role. Not a role I am use to seeing him in but he of course is such a talented actor he pulls it off. A bit of American history in this. Not sure how accurate it is but it works for the story told. This is a film for Cary Grant fans or for those who enjoy period pieces with a bit of history.
