–Comment: 10 Joseph Ashton as 8 yo Joshua aka Little Tree first in this cabin at his grandparents (in Tennessee) and later at a dormitory of a children’s home. Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 4, Ashton in overalls).
The first pic reminds of “Where the Red Fern Grows (2003)” also with Ashton in a similar cabin. He is wearing a union suit. The dorm scenes are much better but also nothing special. Also a haircut and shower scene (brief rear view).
But somehow I don’t like this movie (anymore) Ashton is handsome, but very young here. Also starring James Cromwell, Tantoo Cardinal and Mika Borem. Novel by Forrest Carter, teleplay by Earl Hamner Jr. (The Waltons)!
Rating 5-6. Movie rating ~5.
