Indiana, 1862. Quakers Jess and Eliza Birdwell (Gary Cooper and Dorothy McGuire) live on their family farm. There are only minor ruffles in their quiet life--youngest son, Little Jess, has a running battle with the pet goose, Samantha; Eliza disapproves when Jess turns their weekly buggy ride to worship into a race with neighbor Sam Jordan (Robert Middleton). But the Civil War threatens their calm. Will the Quaker men defend themselves against the invading Confederate Army? Their oldest son, Josh (Anthony Perkins), is torn between beliefs and desires. And what will Jess do when put to the test?

  • This is a wonderful story and a good family movie that presents questions of religious tolerance and the moral validity of war with a gentle voice. It has good humor, sweet romance andenough rumblings of war to keep all entertained.

  • Superb!

    One of the best movies of all time, in my opinion. There's laughter, drama, history, romance--what else could you ask for? Gary Cooper and Dorothy McGuire do such a wonderful job acting together in this movie as a Quaker Couple trying to raise their family in the midst of the Civil War. Truly a GEM and family favorite for all 3 generations in our household!!!

  • A clean, and fun Movie

    I love this movie, and have wanted it for a while, but I like to wait until I find them at the lowest price. This was a good price. It arrived in only a few short days. I was please with the delivery by the seller. If you like an older movie, and this one is in color, you will love this one. The plot is around the Civil War era, and is about a Quaker family, who refuses to fight in the war. It is a movie that will make you smile, laugh, and it is clean. A movie you can truly enjoy with out all the filthy language that movie makers think they need to create for todays society. There will be no guilt enjoying this movie.

  • Friendly Persuasion

    This film is suitable for all ages. It is funny, family oriented and entertaining. I saw this movie when it was originally released. When we purchased our first VCR this was one of the first tapes I bought. I was very glad to find the DVD at overstock. I have purchased other movies that were out of print. Thanks to overstock.com.
