This rare and wonderful 1956 rural drama color movie dvd release is titled...
COME NEXT SPRING
In this upbeat drama set in the 1920's, Matt Ballot, a reformed father, returns to the Arkansas farm of his estranged family after having spent 12 years living in the fast lane. Included in the family are his mute daughter and his young son, whom he'd never seen. Matt is considered a disgrace to the small town and now he finds himself trying to win the love of his children, his wife and the respect of the towns people.

The acting is topnotch and the story is supposedly based on a true incident about a man who deserted his family during hard times in the 1920's (The Great Depression began early for rural America). Unlike most lost men, however, he returned to his family after years of wandering to attempt to put things back together. Ann Sheridan and Steve Cochran give standout performances as estranged husband and wife trying to reconcile their differences. Sherry Jackson is magnetic as the mute daughter instrumental in restoring her parents' love for each other. There is also a wonderful assortment of character actors to play the local folks, including Walter Brennan, Edgar Buchanan, Sonny Tufts, Mae Clark, and James Best in one of his early roles.
The Max Steiner music score is wonderful with Tony Bennett singing the popular theme.
This exceptionally effective and emotional small film is directed by the unheralded (before or afterwards) R. G. Springsteen. It is shot in the lovely storybook Trucolor that really suits the Americana, and with an excellent cast, especially the always gorgeous Anne Sheridan and handsome unappreciated Steve Cochran.
A thoroughly winning film, full of charm and sentiment balanced by straightforward honesty and a trace of grit. Talented screenwriter Montgomery Pittman creates a believable situation involving a ne'er-do-well alcoholic husband (Steve Cochran) who returns to his wife (Ann Sheridan) and family years after abandoning them, hoping to make amends.
COME NEXT SPRING has remained unloved an unappreciated for too long by mainstream knowledge. I've heard Scorsese recites it as an influence and it should well be studied by film makers to see how well a small budget but love and care can result in an excellent tough, real, romantic family drama. You are in for a major discovery and a real treat with this terrific little movie... A must see film!
