Review

Our Score
The second in a round of reunion movies starring the original cast of the popular series. In the mid-1960s, the Walton clan from Virginia gathers once more at the old homestead when John-Boy (Richard Thomas) decides to marry his ritzy, New York fashion editor girlfriend (Kate McNeil). Plans go awry when her busybody aunt tries to arrange a posh do that the newlyweds don't want. While all this is going on Ma (Michael Learned) is returning to college and Pa (Ralph Waite) is embroiled in local politics. There is a lot going on here but under Robert Ellis Miller's capable direction the story never falters. The acting credits are professional and, although it rarely rises above the routine, fans of the Walton brood should find much to celebrate in this one.
