The Thanksgiving Treasure (aka The Holiday Treasure) 1973 DVD Region 1. Color.
Starring: Jason Robards, Barnard Hughes, Lisa Lucas, Mildred Natwick.
In this sequel to THE HOUSE WITHOUT A CHRISTMAS TREE, it is 1947 and heroine Addie Mills, who is being raised by her widower father and his mother, befriends a horse while she is out collecting items for an autumn bouquet for her teacher. Unfortunately, the horse belongs to a crusty old codger named Walter Rhenquist, who hates Addie's dad because a pond James Mills dug for him leaked (James had warned him it was a bad place to put a pond, but he wouldn't listen). When Addie's teacher tells the class a story about the Pilgrims befriending the Indians, she decides to befriend her dad's enemy by bringing him Thanksgiving dinner. A new friendship is the surprising result. This is a wonderfully nostalgic story that looks so authentic you would swear you were peeking into a window at 1947. The children's radio play is delightfully true to the period. With evocative cinematography and an Arthur Rubenstein score that compliments perfectly.
