Ernest Borgnine's performance in this film was perfect! I was raised on a Wisconsin dairy farm in the 60's and 70's and through this movie I was constantly reminded of my late friends and relatives and their manner of thinking and speaking from the heart and how they related with people both friend and foe. If you want an accurate understanding of the American family farmer you will get it from this film. Here Ernest Borgnine proved that he is an American treasure.
An elderly farmer finds out that he owes a huge inheritance tax. Land developers show up to offer him a predatory deal. His neighbors are having similar problems. That's when an old acquaintance of his arrives for a visit and lends a hand.
