In post-Civil War Florida, a struggling dirt farmer (Gregory Peck) can barely raise enough to keep body and soul together for his wife (Jane Wyman) and young son (Claude Jarman, Jr.). Although fate delivers the lonely boy a wanted pet in the form of an orphaned fawn, the family's inability to keep it fed leads him to difficult choices. Timeless telling of the Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings tale co-stars Chill Wills, Henry Travers, Forrest Tucker. 128 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
