I must disagree with what Maltin wrote in his summary, about expecting much more from the cast. I think Bergman and Quinn did a fine job with the script that they were given. The pace was a bit slow in certain scenes, but that was the whole idea, since most of the story was taking place in the Tennessee mountains where everything is quite and serene. When the title indicated that Bergman was paired off with Quinn for this drama, I wasn't certain if Quinn would be the best match to act opposite Ingrid. However, after watching the entire movie, one gets to realize that he was perfect for the role and appreciate him even more. And even if I took a wild guess now, I wouldn't be able to pick a different actor that could portray Will Cade better than Quinn did. I highly recommend viewers to give this movie a chance.
