Our Score
After he'd spent so much time up on Walton's Mountain, you might be forgiven for wondering how Richard Thomas would cope down in the valley with the mighty Mississippi getting ready to burst its banks. But, have no fear, our hero knows just what to do in this kind of emergency, especially when he has true love (and US Army engineer) Kate Vernon by his side. Unfortunately, this mediocre TV movie is an unconvincing blend of the disaster film and an old-fashioned family melodrama, and suffers from not having the budget to create the special effects that make big-screen blockbusters so mindlessly watchable.


Heavy rain causes the Mississippi river to burst its banks, devastating several nearby towns. The small community next in the path of the rising water faces the crisis head on, as a local farmer and an army engineer come up with a plan to divert the course of the flooding. Drama, starring Richard Thomas, Kate Vernon and Nigel Bennett.
