A Day for Thanks on Waltons Mountain

Harry Harris (2) (1982)

PG Certificate


Our Score
The Waltons bade their farewells in this lacklustre TV movie that has all the signs of being a tale too far. There's still plenty of incident to keep die-hard fans guessing. Will Jason become a composer; can Erin really leave the mountain; will Jim-Bob get to be his own boss? Yet things can never really be the same again, what with Robert Wightman now playing John-Boy and Olivia being kept off-screen altogether in a hospital bed in the town. However, Ralph Waite and Ellen Corby bring some sort of continuity and the good old kindred spirit is still hugely appealing.


As Thanksgiving approaches, Elizabeth resolves to gather the entire Walton family together again for an old-fashioned celebration - but struggles to persuade everyone to attend. Drama, starring Kami Cotler, Ralph Waite, Jon Walmsley and Ellen Corby.
