This weekend I flipped through the free movies and I noticed this movie.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, starring James Dunn, Dorothy McGuire and Peggy Ann Garner. Jimmy Dunn won the Academy Award for “Best Supporting Actor” for his performance and was well deserved.
I have always heard of the title but never had a chance to see it. Time Warner, my cable company offered it free, so I a thought why not?
Originally a book:
Then later a movie in 1945.
What an unexpected treasure. I recognized most of the old songs we sang in grade school music room.
It’s done in black and white, but the filming was done so well and fits the tone, you don’t even notice it.
A sweet family, a true American story.
This family knew what it meant to sacrifice and to dream.
I want to watch this again someday. I hope if you haven’t seen it yet that you do watch it. It is just lovely!
