Synopsis
In her TV-movie debut, Jane Fonda stars as an illiterate Kentucky woman who uproots her children to follow her husband to Detroit during World War II, where he has found work as a mechanic, and tries to adjust to a new way of life by utilizing her natural talents as a wood carver. Susan Cooper and Hume Cronyn, who together wrote the Broadway play, "Foxfire," in which Cronyn starred with his wife, Jessica Tandy, reunited to do the television adaptation of Harriette Arnow's novel. Tandy initially was to have played the role of Fonda's mother, but a previous film commitment caused her to give up the part to Geraldine Page. It was Emmy Award nominated as Outstanding Drama Special, Jane Fonda was nominated as Outstanding Actress, and the writing, costume design, and sound mixing also were nominated.
