However, the most uncomfortable thing about this film is how it simply glosses over the preacher's negligence in failing to keep a promise to a mother of looking out for her children at a church picnic. One would assume that there would not only be legal and moral implications to something like this, but you would think it would hinder the preacher's conscience. Instead, the viewer gets the impression that the film offers the religious platitude that it was "God's Will". No it wasn't, it was the preacher's negligence I am sorry to say.
Finally, the ending in this film was grossly disingenuous when it gives us the ardent atheist in this film showing up to wish the preacher farewell, not only ludicrous given the circumstances of their history with each other, but also for the conciliatory speech he gives the preacher which is totally out of character. From what I could see, the film implies that this change in character came about from the preacher's initiative to give Christmas presents to children in the county under the guise of Santa Claus. Please!
Susan Hayward is fine in a rather saccharine role, and William Lundigan does the best he can in a one dimensional role if there ever was one. I suppose if one overlooks the weaknesses in the story, this film is adequate enough for any ardent Susan Hayward fan, which is why I personally viewed it. If not, don't bother.
