I've been closing my eyes and dumping stuff. I thought the movie The Hills of Home would be easy to buy on a DVD. I thought wrong. I am keeping this VHS movie for sure. What in the world is the Hills of Home? Its a Scots old fashioned sweet tale of a doc and his glen. He cares for the people in that glen. He runs into a silly collie dog who happens to look and act like Lassie. The silly dog refuses to cross water. She just will not walk across a stream. How can a sheep herder dog herd sheep when she is a silly with water? The doc takes her in. To top it off the doc is Edmund Gwen. You'll know this gent actor cause he is Santa in Miracle on 34th Street. That venerable man. That very honorable man. I can't find a copy. This movie will stay with us cause it oozes sweetness and light.

Yes, don't get rid of the stuff that is irreplaceable. I got rid of some old old books, thinking that the library would have them if I ever thought to read them again. Now, I am not so sure I should have done that. Libraries clear stuff out on a regular basis that no one reads. The old old books could all disappear.

@paigea I'm quite worried about that. The grand 1950s illustrations in children's books do not seem to be appreciated these days. I'm guessing very few have heard of Tasha Tudor.

@TRBRocks420 Thanks. Our library seems to be going with DVDs and downloads. I looked the movie up on Amazon and they don't have it on DVD that I could find.

@Jessicalynnt I may have found it too. 30 dollars. Gulp. Christmas gifty, maybe. Tasha Tudor was such an artist. Not just for the kiddos. Her interview is mezmerizing. An elderly lady who wore clothes from another era, discussing her life and work and her very lucky children and her gardens. Such gardens!

Sweetness and light is hard to come by these days. We watched the Evening Star with Shirley McClaine last night. It had its moments but ended in sweetness and light.

@JamesHxstatic I know that Prancer is labeled a kid's movie but its a modern movie that gets what a decent movie is.

I have a few things - quite a few actually - that I just can't bear to part with. This sounds a great movie.

@JudyEv 1948 Very good year for a real story. I cried every time I watchedLassie march under the old doc's coffin. The music played and the dog marched as her master was laid to rest.

I'm so excited. @Rohvannyn You did it. You did a very fine thing. You made your Mom very happy. Thank you very much. I read the reviews and yes, Edmund Gwen is the Scots doctor in the movie plus now I have a bunch of Lassie movies coming in the mail!! Now to figure where the Tasha Tudor DVD is hiding.

@shivantani10 The movie was made in 1948. It seems to have vanished from being sold now. If you find it, please tell me. Thanks.
