Some laughably gee-whiz dialogue and unconvincing Olympics bookends ultimately can't detract from the core story. It's based on Michael Landon's own childhood experiences and has the ring of truth to it. The three central performances are all good.

Lance Kerwin's mother in this film is a complete ogress. She's right about one thing though: her husband really should 'man up' - not by disciplining his son but by asserting a bit of authority over his wife! Lance Kerwin gives a sensitive and moving performance in this excellent film.

Lance was superb in this movie, if memory servs, he was still filming seasons of "James At 15,16" at the time he appear in this movie.

Lance Kerwin and Kurt Cameron both own and operate a bible camp.

As far as I know, the last movie Kerwin apeared in as an actor, was Star Trek, The Wrath Of Kahn, he was 17 or 18.

This movie is based in part on the early life of Michael Landon, who was the Director for the film!
