Synopsis

The TV remake of the 1954 David Lean movie classic that starred Charles Laughton and John Mills was transplanted from Lancashire, England, of the 1880's to New Orleans of 1914 while retaining its basic story about a cantankerous, carousing shoe shop owner determined not to give his three daughters a dowry and his clash with the oldest one, a strong-willed girl with a dream who takes her fate in her own hands and sets her sights on one of her father's simple-minded lackeys who happens to be a talented shoemaker. Written in 1916 as a three-act stage comedy, it became the basis of the 1966 Broadway musical, "Walking Happy." For his script, Burt Prelutsky won the Writers Guild Award.
