0:01:270:01:31

Watch it!

0:02:140:02:17

Why in a pluperfect hell did that dirt have to break loose up there, just as we were gettin' deep?

0:02:200:02:28

Ain't that somethin'?

0:02:280:02:30

Hey, Pa.

0:02:300:02:33

I'm gettin' kinda tired diggin' this hole. Can't we start a new one?

0:02:330:02:39

What for?

0:02:390:02:41

We've been diggin' in this one for two months already, Pa!

0:02:410:02:46

We ain't struck nothin' but a lot of hard work!

0:02:460:02:50

I've been diggin' in this land for 15 years. I aim to dig for 15 more.

0:02:500:02:55

You boys ain't found the patience I got.

0:02:550:02:58

We don't need no patience. What we need is a diviner.

0:02:580:03:03

There you go again, talking superstition.

0:03:030:03:07

All you talk about is diviners and conjurers and stuff like that.

0:03:070:03:12

Now you take me.

0:03:120:03:14

I'm scientific.

0:03:140:03:17

-So get us a diggin' machine and get the job done.

-I can't afford it.

0:03:170:03:23

Where are you going, son?

0:03:240:03:27

I'm quittin' for the day, Pa. I'm going to wash up and go to town.

0:03:270:03:32

Never get rich that way.

0:03:320:03:34

I don't aim to get rich. I'm too young.

0:03:340:03:38

I'm worried about that boy. Who does he go see in town?

0:03:410:03:46

< He ain't particular. Anything with skirts.

0:03:460:03:50

He ain't used to women. They can do him harm. He won't know until it's too late to stop the clock.

0:03:500:03:58

Hey, I brought you men some nice, cool lemonade.

0:03:580:04:02

Why, thank you, daughter-in-law!

0:04:020:04:04

What you got for dinner, honey?

0:04:090:04:11

- Same as yesterday, Buck. Bacon. - I'd like me some fried chicken.

0:04:110:04:17

When a man has a wife like Griselda, I don't know how he can keep his mind on food.

0:04:170:04:23

Now quit your teasin', Ty-Ty.

0:04:250:04:28

If the Lord has put a beauty like you in our house, I'll take my fill of lookin'!

0:04:280:04:34

You don't know how lucky you are!

0:04:340:04:37

Am I lucky? Cos I got a wife who don't love me?

0:04:370:04:41

What you two lovebirds got to argue about?

0:04:420:04:46

I never argue with Buck. Too busy daydreamin' about Will!

0:04:460:04:52

Quit throwin' his name up to me!

0:04:520:04:55

He snaps his fingers and you run!

0:04:550:04:57

Keep on this way and you'll wake up some fine day all by your lonesome!

0:04:570:05:03

You don't mean that, Griselda. You tell Buck you don't mean that.

0:05:030:05:08

Tell him I don't want to hear him mention Will Thompson again!

0:05:080:05:13

HORN TOOTS

0:05:250:05:28

Good morning, Pluto.

0:05:400:05:42

Good morning, Miss Griselda. Howdy, Charlie! Good morning to you, too!

0:05:420:05:47

He's a cute little fella, ain't he?

0:05:470:05:50

-Where's Ty-Ty?

-Right down there in that big hole.

0:05:500:05:54

Sure is hot. Phew! Ty-Ty!

0:05:540:05:57

Ty-Ty!

0:05:580:06:01

Ty-Ty!

0:06:020:06:05

Ty-Ty!

0:06:060:06:08

Ty-Ty!

0:06:120:06:14

Ty-Ty, which one of these holes are you in?

0:06:140:06:18

Right here, Pluto!

0:06:200:06:22

LAUGHTER

0:06:280:06:31

That ain't much of a neighbourly greeting!

0:06:330:06:38

Hey, how you boys makin' out? Strike anything lately?

0:06:410:06:45

No, nothing much, Pluto.

0:06:450:06:48

But we will pretty soon.

0:06:480:06:50

I feel it in my bones!

0:06:500:06:53

So do I.

0:06:530:06:56

What you folks lookin' for?

0:06:560:06:58

You've been comin' here for a year, and you seen me diggin', and you didn't know what I was diggin' for?

0:07:100:07:18

I figured you were lookin' for water.

0:07:180:07:22

Water?!

0:07:220:07:24

Pluto, you think I've gone clean out of my head?

0:07:240:07:29

-I'm diggin' for gold!

-Gold? In the state of Georgia?

0:07:290:07:33

Bright yellow gold!

0:07:330:07:36

Gold coins as big and round as a biscuit. Thousands of 'em.

0:07:360:07:41

-Is that a fact?

-Yeah, gold spoons, gold plates, gold forks...

0:07:410:07:46

-and gold thunder bugs, I shouldn't be surprised!

-Have you seen 'em? For a fact?

0:07:460:07:52

-Almost.

-Where?

0:07:520:07:55

I don't know exactly.

0:07:580:08:01

I ain't found any,

0:08:020:08:04

but they're there.

0:08:040:08:07

They're there.

0:08:070:08:10

My grandpa told me about it and willed it to me the day he died.

0:08:110:08:17

Well, maybe he might have been mistaken.

0:08:270:08:32

Are you makin' my dead grandpa out to be a liar?

0:08:330:08:37

-I wouldn't do that.

-I can't stand a liar!

0:08:370:08:41

You ain't found no gold yet. You need an albino to help you out.

0:08:410:08:46

-A man ain't got as much chance as a snowball in hell without an albino to help him find something.

-A what?

0:08:460:08:54

-An albino.

-What in a pluperfect hell is that, Pluto?

0:08:540:08:59

One of these all-white men. Looks like they made out of chalk. White as cotton.

0:08:590:09:05

Got white hair, white skin, white eyeballs even.

0:09:050:09:10

You fellas need one bad.

0:09:100:09:12

No, Pluto.

0:09:150:09:18

I'm scientific. I wouldn't have nothing to do with conjure.

0:09:180:09:23

I ain't talkin' about no conjure, Ty-Ty. I'm talkin' about an albino.

0:09:230:09:28

They got a secret power. They can see right through the ground. Like it was a glass of water.

0:09:280:09:35

Strictly scientific.

0:09:350:09:38

My God!

0:09:390:09:42

You got me convinced.

0:09:430:09:46

You got me convinced. Where's he at?

0:09:470:09:51

-Down by the swamp.

-Let's go!

0:09:510:09:53

-A real albino?

-As real as the day is long.

0:09:530:09:58

-You think we can catch him?

-Yeah. A leather plough line will do it.

0:09:580:10:03

Don't forget. This albino is a citizen and a voter.

0:10:030:10:07

If you tie him up, don't break the law. But if you do, mention me out. I'm the future Sheriff!

0:10:070:10:14

-How big is he?

-It's not how big that counts. It's his whiteness.

0:10:140:10:19

His blood is white, the wax in his ears is white.

0:10:190:10:23

I'm going to get that white man if I have to bust a gut! Buck, fix up the automobile for a little trip.

0:10:230:10:31

-Make sure the tyres is pumped up hard and tight and put plenty of water in the radiator!

-Yes, sir!

0:10:310:10:38

I'm sure grateful to you for that suggestion about the albino.

0:10:400:10:45

I'm tired of diggin' in weather like this. I sure am grateful

0:10:450:10:51

you came by today, Pluto. Yes, sir!

0:10:510:10:53

I've been missing an albino to show me exactly where that gold is buried!

0:10:530:11:00

-That white-haired boy can do it like you said?

-Sure. An albino can find almost anything.

0:11:000:11:07

He might walk right out into that field, look down at the ground and see where all that gold is buried.

0:11:070:11:14

-Right there?

-Anywhere.

0:11:180:11:21

Ty-Ty! What the devil you doin'? That's where your grandpa's buried!

0:11:280:11:33

No, this is God's little acre. Put this cross here to mark the spot.

0:11:330:11:38

It's been here 27 years.

0:11:380:11:41

Must be grown into...the ground!

0:11:420:11:45

-God's little acre?

-That's right.

0:11:540:11:56

The day I was married, I promised this piece of land to the church.

0:11:560:12:02

Everything that grows here they can have - cotton, corn, anything else.

0:12:020:12:07

If that ground's so sacred,

0:12:100:12:13

why did you take the cross out?

0:12:130:12:16

Cos it just occurred to me I never dug a hole in God's little acre in all these years,

0:12:160:12:22

but suppose that albino walks out on my farm and points to that land there?

0:12:220:12:29

Suppose the gold's been buried there all the time?

0:12:290:12:34

I'd be compelled by my conscience to give that gold to the preacher.

0:12:340:12:39

Or worse yet, maybe I wouldn't give him nothing.

0:12:390:12:43

I'm a religious man, but I wouldn't stand for that.

0:12:430:12:47

-What are you going to do with it?

-I'm going to move God's little acre.

0:12:510:12:57

To a spot where I don't stand out in the open... to sin and temptation.

0:12:570:13:04

God...

0:13:450:13:47

please forgive me.

0:13:470:13:50

I had to move your little acre.

0:13:500:13:52

I just had to.

0:13:520:13:55

To put myself out of temptation.

0:13:550:13:58

If I found gold way up there,

0:13:580:14:00

I'd be then sorely tempted not to turn it over to you.

0:14:000:14:06

You wouldn't want me to have temptation? I know that.

0:14:060:14:10

I don't mean to cheat you none.

0:14:100:14:13

Oh, no, I don't.

0:14:130:14:16

You can have anything that grows on this piece of ground - flowers or honey or anything else.

0:14:160:14:23

Daughter-in-law, is that watermelon cool and ripe and ready to eat?

0:14:270:14:33

It sure is, Pa.

0:14:340:14:37

Boys, let's all go in the house and get some of that nice, cool watermelon!

0:14:440:14:51

Come on, Pluto.

0:14:510:14:53

I can't. There's a mass of votes between here and the crossroads.

0:14:530:14:58

You're going to kill yourself runnin' for Sheriff. It ain't worth it.

0:14:580:15:04

There's something I want to talk to you about. Been pressin' on my mind.

0:15:080:15:13

-Just what did you want to talk to me about?

-It's about your girl, sir.

-Which one?

0:15:130:15:20

I got three. All beautiful. The glory of the world!

0:15:200:15:25

-I agree to that.

-Pluto, you know somethin'? Your eyes look just like watermelon seeds!

0:15:250:15:31

Mr Swint, your eyes are so small and your face is so round,

0:15:310:15:36

you look exactly like a watermelon with two seeds showing!

0:15:360:15:41

Now, Pluto...

0:15:430:15:46

About my girls...

0:15:460:15:49

Rosamund lives in Peachtree Valley.

0:15:490:15:52

She's too far away to do you any good. And she's married to Will Thompson.

0:15:520:15:59

Then there's Griselda. Of course, she's married, too.

0:15:590:16:03

I sometimes wonder if Buck is a right and proper husband for a girl as beautiful as Griselda.

0:16:030:16:10

Even if he is my own flesh and blood.

0:16:130:16:17

So...

0:16:180:16:20

that leaves my baby - Darlin' Jill.

0:16:200:16:23

But she's too young to go courtin'.

0:16:230:16:26

I don't want to court her.

0:16:260:16:29

I want to marry her.

0:16:290:16:31

You would, Pluto?

0:16:350:16:37

You mean it?

0:16:370:16:40

I'd cut off my right arm to marry her.

0:16:400:16:44

Have you taken a liking to her, Pluto?

0:16:440:16:48

I sure to God have and that's a fact.

0:16:480:16:52

-Only there's one thing kind of bothers me.

-What's that?

0:16:520:16:57

Well, I heard...

0:16:570:16:59

She's been teasin' and foolin' around with a lot of men, I heard.

0:16:590:17:04

Why, I'm tickled to death to hear that!

0:17:090:17:13

Darlin' Jill is the baby of the family and she's grown up at last!

0:17:130:17:19

She sure has. It's a pity God can't make a woman like Darlin' Jill and leave off before it goes too far.

0:17:190:17:27

He just didn't know when he made enough of a good thing.

0:17:270:17:31

He just kept on and on. And now look at her!

0:17:310:17:36

Pay it no mind, Pluto.

0:17:360:17:38

Darlin' Jill likes to tease, but that's only natural.

0:17:380:17:43

A woman's got to tease some before they settle down to babies.

0:17:430:17:48

Better to do it now than after gettin' married. She'll change.

0:17:480:17:53

-It's up to you to make her so happy that she'll leave off everybody but you!

-Pa!

0:17:530:18:00

-The car's ready. Why don't we just go?

-We're waitin' for Darlin' Jill.

0:18:000:18:05

Darlin' Jill won't get back till she rides Pluto's truck in some ditch.

0:18:050:18:10

It's 12 hours to that swamp and back.

0:18:100:18:13

I'd like to get that albino and get back here, so I can go to town.

0:18:130:18:18

Son, I'm mighty proud to hear you say you that.

0:18:180:18:22

Too many people sit on their butts and wait for their corn to grow!

0:18:220:18:28

Not me and not my sons. We're in a hurry to get rich.

0:18:280:18:32

Get in the car, Shaw.

0:18:320:18:35

-Pluto!

-Hmm?

-I want to ask you a favour.

-I can't do no favours without my car.

0:18:350:18:42

Darlin' Jill's going to bring your car back and when she does, I want you

0:18:420:18:47

-to drive her to Peachtree Valley.

-What about me, Pa? I want to go, too.

0:18:470:18:53

I don't want to hang around here waitin' for something to happen.

0:18:550:19:00

You stay here.

0:19:010:19:04

I'll go if I please to go.

0:19:040:19:07

-Can't wait to see Will again.

-Buck!

-She goes to see Will Thompson over my dead body!

0:19:070:19:14

I want you to stay here

0:19:200:19:23

and cook us a mess of food and wait for us to come back.

0:19:230:19:27

Tell Darlin' Jill to go and get Rosamund and Will and come back to the farm where she was born.

0:19:270:19:35

I want my whole family together when we turn that albino loose and locate my grandpa's gold

0:19:360:19:43

and make us all rich again. Will you help me, Pluto?

0:19:430:19:48

-I can if you'll let me be your son-in-law.

-That ain't up to me or Darlin' Jill. That's up to you.

0:19:480:19:55

-Start the car.

-Promise to stay here. I won't promise anything!

0:19:550:20:00

Now, Buck, why don't you use your charm

0:20:010:20:05

and ask her nice, like?

0:20:050:20:08

Ask her. It won't hurt you.

0:20:090:20:12

I'm asking you to stay, Griselda.

0:20:130:20:16

Are you askin' me or tellin' me?

0:20:160:20:19

-He's askin' you.

-Let him say it!

0:20:190:20:22

I'm asking you, Griselda.

0:20:300:20:32

All right.

0:20:330:20:36

I'll stay.

0:20:360:20:39

Let's go, Pa.

0:20:400:20:43

Don't forget to tell Darlin' Jill what I told you!

0:20:480:20:52

Pluto! Pluto, darling!

0:21:240:21:27

Hey, you big horse head,

0:21:350:21:38

-come here!

-Yes, Darlin' Jill. I'm comin', Darlin' Jill!

0:21:380:21:43

-I'm comin'!

-Stop!

0:21:430:21:46

Now close your eyes.

0:21:460:21:48

Well, what do I have to do that for, Darlin' Jill?

0:21:480:21:53

Cos I say so, you big horse head!

0:21:530:21:57

All right.

0:21:580:22:00

Now, come straight ahead.

0:22:010:22:04

Uh-uh-uh-uh!

0:22:060:22:09

Over that. That's it. Straight ahead.

0:22:090:22:13

Your pa been diggin' any holes around here?

0:22:130:22:17

I'm watchin' you. Don't worry.

0:22:170:22:20

OK. Come on, come on, come on.

0:22:200:22:22

Stop, stop!

0:22:240:22:27

Now, turn left.

0:22:270:22:30

Left, you big horse head!

0:22:300:22:32

Come on.

0:22:320:22:35

Now, right. OK, come on. Straight ahead.

0:22:350:22:39

Can't I just look a little bit?

0:22:390:22:42

-No. Keep your eyes closed and come on. I'm right over here.

-It's awfully dark.

0:22:420:22:49

Turn left. Now right.

0:22:490:22:52

Now, come straight ahead.

0:22:520:22:55

-That's not me, Pluto. That's the pump.

-Yeah, that's the pump.

0:22:560:23:01

Pump me some nice, cool water.

0:23:010:23:04

Oh, that's nice.

0:23:080:23:11

Yes, that's very nice.

0:23:110:23:13

-Is that goin' all over you?

-Yeah.

0:23:130:23:16

Oh! Darn my socks...

0:23:260:23:29

Oh, Darlin'... Agh!

0:23:290:23:32

Oh, darn my socks!

0:23:320:23:35

LAUGHTER

0:23:350:23:38

Darlin' Jill, I don't even know what I'm doin' here.

0:24:160:24:20

This ain't even the right state for me to get elected, let alone the right county. And it's hot!

0:24:200:24:28

Oh, Darlin' Jill!

0:24:280:24:31

No, no, Darlin' Jill! No!

0:24:310:24:34

Darlin' Jill, that's no place to keep keys.

0:24:340:24:38

Listen to me, please. Darlin' Jill...

0:24:380:24:41

-Will isn't anywhere.

-Let's go home. I'll count some votes.

0:24:410:24:46

Will's the kind of man, if he's anywhere around, you sure take notice of him. Come on.

0:24:460:24:53

< SOBBING

0:25:000:25:03

Rosamund, what in the world is the matter with you?

0:25:060:25:10

Jill...

0:25:160:25:18

Darlin' Jill...

0:25:180:25:21

I wasn't expecting you.

0:25:210:25:23

What's wrong?

0:25:250:25:28

I'm glad you came.

0:25:300:25:33

I thought I was going to die.

0:25:330:25:35

I must've been out of my head a little.

0:25:350:25:39

What did Will do? Where is he?

0:25:390:25:42

Oh, hello, Pluto.

0:25:450:25:48

I sure am glad to see you, too.

0:25:480:25:51

Let me take the clothes off this chair and you can sit down.

0:25:520:25:57

I've got to go home. That's a fact.

0:25:570:26:00

Shut up and sit down! Rosamund, tell me what happened. You can talk in front of Pluto.

0:26:000:26:07

Now, where's Will?

0:26:070:26:09

He's been drunk all week. He drinks whenever he can.

0:26:090:26:14

I wouldn't mind that. It's just he won't stay home with me no more.

0:26:140:26:19

He sleeps all day and goes out at night.

0:26:190:26:23

It ain't his fault.

0:26:230:26:26

The mill's been closed down for six months. He's got nothin' to do.

0:26:260:26:31

Ain't it ever going to open again?

0:26:310:26:34

I reckon not. They say it don't pay a dividend no more. It's bankrupt.

0:26:340:26:39

This whole town is bankrupt. We ought to all pack up and move away right now, but we don't.

0:26:390:26:47

Everybody looks up to Will and he won't move.

0:26:470:26:51

He says he's going to open the mill again somehow. He don't know how.

0:26:510:26:56

I'm glad I came. Pa wants you and Will to help him dig. He's got a sure way to find Grandpa's gold.

0:26:560:27:04

Darlin' Jill, there ain't no gold on that place!

0:27:080:27:12

If there was, don't you think they'd have found it before now?

0:27:120:27:17

Why can't Pa quit diggin' that land full of holes and try to raise corn or cotton like everybody else does?

0:27:170:27:25

I don't know about that, but Pa wants you and Will to come home.

0:27:250:27:30

Will? Will won't dig on no farm. He's not a farm boy.

0:27:300:27:35

Pa ought to know that by this time.

0:27:360:27:39

Besides, I don't even know if Will's coming home tonight.

0:27:390:27:43

-We'll sit here and wait for him. We'll spend the night.

-A mighty fine idea. We'll spend the night.

0:27:430:27:51

Not so fine as all that. I'm going to sleep on the bed with Rosamund. You make yourself a pallet on the floor.

0:27:510:27:59

Oh.

0:27:590:28:01

Darlin' Jill, you're here!

0:28:290:28:32

Stand up. Let me look at you in the light.

0:28:320:28:36

The baby's a full-grown woman!

0:28:370:28:40

Plump as a peach on a branch, ripe and ready to pluck!

0:28:400:28:45

Don't take on that way. We got company.

0:28:450:28:49

Pluto! How you doin'? Lookin' bigger and better than ever.

0:28:490:28:53

Mr Thompson, you look like everything's fine with you.

0:28:530:28:58

Well, it ain't.

0:28:580:29:00

Where are you goin'?

0:29:180:29:20

Tryin' to slip away, were you? Ain't that a sneaky thing to do? Come back here and keep me company!

0:29:220:29:30

How's Griselda?

0:29:360:29:39

She's still married.

0:29:390:29:42

You know, Pluto. I bought Griselda the first pair of high-heeled shoes she ever wore.

0:29:420:29:48

Will, the bed's made. Go to sleep.

0:29:480:29:52

When Griselda worked in the mill and walked around in them high-heeled shoes,

0:29:520:29:58

no man got a full day's work done.

0:29:580:30:00

Will, don't talk about it now.

0:30:000:30:03

That girl, Griselda, we almost got married.

0:30:030:30:07

She wanted me to go root and grub on a farm, but I wouldn't do it.

0:30:070:30:13

I'm a town boy. I gotta be where I can hear a factory whistle blow three times a day

0:30:130:30:20

and watch the crowds of girls come runnin' out of the company gate,

0:30:200:30:25

laughin' and screamin',

0:30:250:30:28

faces like...like flowers.

0:30:280:30:31

Will, you've got to realise something once and for all.

0:30:310:30:36

That mill ain't never going to open again. And Griselda's married.

0:30:360:30:42

You can't do nothin' about it. Come on. Get into bed.

0:30:420:30:46

Come on.

0:30:460:30:49

What's done is done.

0:30:520:30:54

Now go to sleep.

0:30:540:30:57

-I can't sleep.

-Well, you can rest.

0:30:570:31:00

I'll turn out the light, so it won't hurt your eyes.

0:31:000:31:05

-Felix...

-Yes, sir?

0:31:300:31:32

How's my albino?

0:31:320:31:35

Sleepin' like a baby, Mr Ty-Ty.

0:31:350:31:38

Mornin', Dave.

0:32:010:32:04

Did you sleep well?

0:32:040:32:06

Where am I?

0:32:070:32:10

You're with friends.

0:32:100:32:13

We went to a lot of fuss and bother to get you.

0:32:140:32:18

I sure hope that you appreciate it.

0:32:190:32:22

I'm hungry.

0:32:230:32:26

You'll get your breakfast in due time, but first you got work to do.

0:32:260:32:31

-What kind of work?

-It's easy. I'll show you.

0:32:310:32:35

You take this...this willow fork

0:32:350:32:39

and you hold it like...

0:32:390:32:42

like that...

0:32:420:32:44

..till she pulls you down,

0:32:450:32:48

scientifically speaking...

0:32:480:32:51

..right down to where the gold is surely located.

0:32:520:32:56

Gold? Are you lookin' for gold?

0:32:570:33:00

Why do you think we come clean down to the swamp to lasso you?

0:33:020:33:07

I still don't know.

0:33:070:33:10

You're a genuine albino, ain't ya?

0:33:110:33:14

Yeah, I reckon I am.

0:33:140:33:16

What would I be doin' with an albino, except to find gold?

0:33:180:33:23

I ain't going to do it.

0:33:230:33:26

-Why not, son?

-Cos I don't know how.

0:33:260:33:30

You don't know how?!

0:33:300:33:33

-You're a genuine albino and you don't even...

-Let him loose, Mr Ty-Ty.

0:33:330:33:39

Son, if you don't know how to divine gold, start learnin' right now.

0:33:390:33:44

These nice folks will be mad and we won't get no victuals this winter.

0:33:440:33:49

I just can't. I can't!

0:33:490:33:52

I'm sorry I got angry, son.

0:33:570:34:00

But I've been diggin' for gold for 15 years.

0:34:020:34:07

And I ain't going to give up.

0:34:070:34:10

I don't know what to do.

0:34:110:34:14

It's easy now. I'll show you.

0:34:140:34:17

Here...

0:34:170:34:20

You take this willow stick.

0:34:200:34:23

That's it. Turn your wrists up.

0:34:230:34:25

That's right. Put it out in front of you.

0:34:250:34:29

He can do it. You can do it!

0:34:390:34:42

Open the barn door!

0:34:420:34:45

It's pullin' you towards the gold!

0:34:520:34:54

Give him room, give him room!

0:35:010:35:04

Come on, Dave!

0:35:040:35:07

Hurry and find my grandpappy's gold!

0:35:100:35:14

I can't stand it much longer!

0:35:140:35:17

Here now, boy.

0:35:170:35:20

That's the way.

0:35:210:35:24

Is that where my grandpa's gold is?

0:35:280:35:31

Come on now!

0:35:320:35:34

Feel it, Dave.

0:35:360:35:39

Feel it, Dave. Feel it, Dave!

0:35:390:35:43

Come on, Dave, feel it!

0:35:430:35:46

Come on, Dave, feel it!

0:35:460:35:49

Feel it!

0:35:490:35:51

That's it.

0:35:510:35:54

There we go. Come on!

0:35:550:35:57

SHOUTS OF ENCOURAGEMENT

0:36:000:36:03

Stop!

0:36:090:36:11

Come on, Dave. Follow it. Follow it good.

0:36:180:36:22

Come on... Follow it, boy.

0:36:220:36:26

Follow it.

0:36:260:36:29

Yeah!

0:36:360:36:38

My grandpappy's gold!

0:36:380:36:41

Way down there deep in the ground! Would you believe it? Under my house all the time!

0:36:410:36:48

Buried 100 years. Longer than a man can live!

0:36:480:36:52

Now I'm...

0:36:520:36:55

about to find it.

0:36:550:36:58

Touch it, feel it.

0:36:580:37:01

And butt into it if I want to.

0:37:020:37:05

Praise the Lord!

0:37:090:37:12

Amen. Amen!

0:37:130:37:16

Maybe, Mr Ty-Ty, you'll stop diggin' and start farmin'!

0:37:160:37:21

Now wait a minute!

0:37:210:37:23

I don't want no bad luck. This is God's little acre, ain't it?

0:37:230:37:28

-And so is the gold.

-No, Buck.

0:37:280:37:31

I can't honestly say it is. The minute before Dave found the gold, something come over me.

0:37:310:37:38

And I decided to change the location of God's little acre.

0:37:380:37:43

Just about in time, I reckon.

0:37:430:37:46

Where's it now, Pa?

0:37:460:37:49

-The Lord ain't told me yet.

-Tell him to hurry.

-Don't talk like that!

0:37:490:37:54

The good Lord and your pa, we're old-fashioned.

0:37:540:37:59

We got to take our time.

0:37:590:38:01

Now, God...

0:38:340:38:37

I don't aim to take you nothin'. I swear I don't.

0:38:370:38:41

But with this unseasonable weather and all, you won't mind to have your acre in a cooler spot.

0:38:410:38:49

If you don't like this,

0:38:500:38:52

if you don't approve of what I'm doing, Lord...

0:38:520:38:57

..then strike me down dead right here where I stand!

0:38:580:39:02

Thank you, Lord.

0:39:130:39:16

Glory be. Amen.

0:39:160:39:18

-Hi, Harry.

-Hi, Will.

0:39:420:39:45

-Who's come in the car to your house?

-Rosamund's people.

0:39:450:39:50

-What they come for?

-Just a visit.

0:39:500:39:53

They ain't come to take you away?

0:39:530:39:56

I won't leave Peachtree Valley till they start the cotton mill again.

0:39:560:40:01

It's easy for you and Rosamund to leave. There's just the two of you.

0:40:010:40:06

We got big families. We ain't got the money to move somewhere else.

0:40:060:40:11

-You don't have to tell me.

-We got worried while we waited for you.

0:40:110:40:16

Hi, boys.

0:40:160:40:19

He ain't going to leave us, boys.

0:40:190:40:21

He's going to stay in town like he said.

0:40:210:40:24

Claude!

0:40:270:40:30

Claude!

0:40:300:40:32

Claude!

0:40:330:40:35

Where are you, Claude?

0:40:350:40:38

Hey, Claude!

0:40:380:40:40

-Is that you, Will Thompson?

-Who else?

-You drinkin' again?

-Let me in.

0:40:400:40:46

-Why do you come here?

-I want to get in.

-What are you lookin' for?

0:40:460:40:51

I'm lookin' for the day when the lights shine from all those windows.

0:40:510:40:56

The mill ain't going to open up again.

0:40:560:40:58

-The spindles are threaded, the power's connected. Someone needs to pull the switch.

-That's crazy talk.

0:40:580:41:06

-Go home before your wife has to come lookin' for you again.

-Don't tell me what to do. I know what I must do.

0:41:060:41:14

Why don't you go to Ned's bar and get yourself a drink? Have it on me.

0:41:140:41:20

Are we home, Pluto?

0:41:550:41:58

-No, but we ain't but a mile away.

-What are we stoppin' for?

0:41:580:42:03

Darlin' Jill, I just gotta have an answer.

0:42:030:42:07

Take the pins out my hair.

0:42:070:42:09

Will you?

0:42:090:42:12

God Almighty, Darlin' Jill, I just gotta know!

0:42:210:42:25

-You'll wake Will and Rosamund.

-They can't hear nothin'.

0:42:250:42:30

I'm not ready to get married to anybody yet,

0:42:300:42:34

least of all you.

0:42:340:42:36

You don't have to be ready. I'm ready enough for both of us.

0:42:360:42:41

I'll marry you any time - daytime, night-time, all the time.

0:42:410:42:46

I'm so crazy about you.

0:42:460:42:48

Your belly's too big.

0:42:480:42:51

You don't want to let a little thing like that come between us.

0:42:510:42:56

If your belly weren't so big, you couldn't be Sheriff.

0:42:560:43:00

-If you weren't going to be Sheriff, I wouldn't look at you.

-Don't tease me like that.

0:43:000:43:07

Just because I'm so crazy in love with you,

0:43:070:43:11

there's no reason to get me so riled up and provoked that I take my hands and...

0:43:110:43:17

-And just...

-And what? What would you do, Pluto?

0:43:170:43:21

I'd tan your hide. I'd tan your hide!

0:43:210:43:25

For a minute, I thought you was going to darn your socks again!

0:43:250:43:29

I'd tan your hide.

0:43:290:43:32

I'm home! Pa, where are you?

0:44:080:44:11

Right here!

0:44:110:44:14

My goodness! That's the biggest hole you've dug yet! Did you find anything?

0:44:140:44:20

We've dug a whole 20 feet since this morning.

0:44:200:44:24

The fastest digging in 15 years!

0:44:240:44:27

Welcome home, Rosamund. Will! I'm so proud you're here to celebrate our good luck. Boys, it's Rosamund!

0:44:270:44:34

Hi, Rosamund. Hi, Rosamund.

0:44:340:44:37

-Hello, Buck and Shaw.

-Griselda!

0:44:370:44:40

Griselda! The family's here!

0:44:400:44:43

Did you find any of that gold?

0:44:430:44:45

Hello, Will.

0:44:460:44:49

Hello, Griselda.

0:44:490:44:52

-It's been a long time.

-A real long time.

0:44:520:44:55

-It's good to see you.

-You look like you just stepped out of a calendar.

0:44:550:45:01

You look like hell, Will! What you been doin'?

0:45:010:45:05

Nothin', boys. Absolutely nothin'.

0:45:050:45:07

Same old lint-head! Same old lint-head!

0:45:070:45:11

What Will needs, Rosamund, is to occupy himself with somethin' useful.

0:45:190:45:26

Will, there's nothin' better for a man's body and spirit than diggin' down in God's good earth.

0:45:260:45:33

Rosamund, go in the house and help Griselda warm up the eats.

0:45:330:45:38

Pluto here is just about starvin'.

0:45:380:45:41

I sure am and that's a fact.

0:45:410:45:44

Come into the house. Nothin' makes a man hungrier than havin' his whole family around.

0:45:440:45:50

That is a tremendous hole you dug.

0:45:500:45:54

What's that?

0:45:540:45:56

Can it vote?

0:45:560:45:59

-That?

-Mm-hm.

-Why, that's that white man you put me on!

0:45:590:46:04

Great guns, Pluto! That's the albino we roped in the swamp.

0:46:040:46:09

-Did he divine for you?

-Like four and four makes eight. Go in the house with Rosamund.

0:46:090:46:15

-This is crazy - diggin' right beside the house. It'll topple over into that hole!

-It won't fall down.

0:46:150:46:22

We'll prop it up as we go along. If we strike gold, we'll be rich enough to build a house

0:46:220:46:29

three times this size!

0:46:290:46:32

What are you lookin' at, Darlin' Jill?

0:46:340:46:38

I'm lookin' at that albino. I've never seen one before.

0:46:380:46:42

He's just the same as you and me.

0:46:420:46:45

Can he talk?

0:46:450:46:47

-He'd talk your arm off if you give him half a chance.

-I want to see him. Call him up here.

0:46:470:46:54

I don't aim to have nobody fool with him. He's got to stay in a job for me all the time.

0:46:540:47:01

-Come into the house.

-I'm comin', Pa.

0:47:010:47:04

Hello there, albino fella.

0:47:140:47:17

My name is Dave Dawson.

0:47:190:47:21

I sure am pleased to meet you.

0:47:230:47:26

He sure didn't tell any lies about your colour!

0:47:270:47:31

You're white.

0:47:310:47:34

That's for sure.

0:47:340:47:36

It's a pretty colour, too.

0:47:360:47:39

I like it.

0:47:390:47:42

Thank you, ma'am.

0:47:430:47:46

That's the first kind words I've heard since your pa kidnapped me with a leather plough line!

0:47:460:47:53

Now that I got such a good look at you,

0:47:540:47:58

wouldn't you like to come up here and get a good look at me?

0:47:580:48:03

I don't mind.

0:48:030:48:05

Well, what do you say?

0:48:120:48:15

You're beautiful.

0:48:190:48:21

Won't you come on up here and say that again?

0:48:220:48:27

Ow!

0:48:340:48:37

That'll get him shy and scared, Darlin' Jill. He might run away.

0:48:370:48:42

I don't feel like chasin' him. >

0:48:420:48:45

He won't run away, Uncle Felix. I promise you that. Come on, come on!

0:48:450:48:51

Besides, we're only going to watch the moon rise over the pond. Come on, Dave.

0:48:510:48:58

Don't you like me?

0:49:040:49:06

Oh, gosh almighty!

0:49:060:49:09

I didn't know there was a girl as pretty as you in the whole country!

0:49:090:49:14

You're the prettiest girl I've ever seen!

0:49:140:49:19

And, uh...

0:49:190:49:21

And you're so soft.

0:49:210:49:24

And you talk like a birdsong.

0:49:250:49:28

And, uh... And you smell good, too.

0:49:310:49:34

I just love the way you talk.

0:49:350:49:38

Talk to me some more.

0:49:390:49:41

What do you want me to say?

0:49:410:49:44

How come you're so white all over?

0:49:450:49:48

Some people say it's cos I was made in the white of the moon.

0:49:480:49:53

I think you're wonderful-looking. I'm glad you're so different.

0:49:530:49:58

I get so tired of the same-looking people every day of my life! Would you like to kiss me?

0:49:580:50:05

Oh, uh... Yeah, I would if you'll let me.

0:50:050:50:09

I reckon I just couldn't help myself.

0:50:090:50:13

SCREAMS

0:50:130:50:15

Will you marry me?

0:50:280:50:31

I only said you could kiss me once. It was mean of Pa to wrap you on that plough line and bring you here.

0:50:310:50:38

But I'm awful glad that he did!

0:50:380:50:41

I reckon I am, too.

0:50:410:50:44

Do you want to kiss me again?

0:50:440:50:46

You bet I do!

0:50:460:50:49

How come they call you Darlin' Jill?

0:50:570:51:00

My name is Jill, and when I was little, everybody said I was a darlin'!

0:51:000:51:07

So they called me Darlin' Jill.

0:51:070:51:10

That's a perfect name for you. I couldn't think of a better name for you.

0:51:100:51:16

You are a darlin'!

0:51:160:51:19

Pluto!

0:51:200:51:23

Pluto!

0:51:240:51:26

Pluto! What's the matter, Pluto?

0:51:270:51:31

-You left all them good hominy grits on the table.

-I'm worried. Where's Darlin' Jill?

0:51:310:51:37

She was right here a minute...

0:51:370:51:40

Gone.

0:51:460:51:48

My albino's gone!

0:51:510:51:54

Uncle Felix has gone.

0:51:540:51:56

Now you got me worried.

0:51:560:51:59

Where do you think she is? Think she fell in one of these holes?

0:51:590:52:04

Don't worry. We'll find her.

0:52:040:52:07

I can't help it.

0:52:080:52:11

They've been gone more than half an hour.

0:52:110:52:15

An awful lot can happen in half an hour.

0:52:160:52:20

Just like what?

0:52:200:52:23

Well, like one thing... I don't know.

0:52:230:52:26

Maybe they just took off to another county and got married.

0:52:260:52:31

-Now you got me really worried. Darlin Jill's crazy enough to do anythin'!

-Darlin' Jill, come home!

0:52:310:52:38

Supper's waitin'!

0:52:380:52:41

I'm waitin'! Aaagh!

0:52:410:52:44

Pluto!

0:52:450:52:47

-Ty-Ty, help!

-Where are you?

0:52:470:52:49

-I'm down in a hole!

-Which hole are you in?

-This there deep one!

0:52:490:52:54

Have you got me, Ty-Ty?

0:52:580:53:01

I got you, Pluto. Come on. Come on, boy.

0:53:010:53:05

Why must you make these holes so deep?

0:53:050:53:09

Darlin' Jill!

0:53:110:53:13

Darlin' Jill!

0:53:150:53:18

Darlin' Jill!

0:53:190:53:22

-Dave!

-Where are you?

0:53:220:53:24

Darlin' Jill! Darlin' Jill!

0:53:240:53:27

I knew it. I just knew it.

0:53:270:53:30

My white-haired boy's gone!

0:53:300:53:33

Darlin' Jill!

0:53:330:53:35

-Took off and went home!

-Darlin' Jill! Don't run away to that swamp!

0:53:350:53:42

-Darlin' Jill!

-I never should've...

0:53:420:53:45

Darlin' Jill!

0:53:470:53:49

Darlin' Jill!

0:53:490:53:52

Well, dog my cat!

0:53:560:53:59

Did you find 'em? Well, did you?

0:54:020:54:05

Well, you know, Pluto,

0:54:050:54:08

in this pale moonlight,

0:54:080:54:10

you can't see a thing.

0:54:100:54:13

Seems like these boys would have more sense than to let Ty-Ty egg 'em into diggin' empty holes.

0:54:520:54:59

You're just a lousy lint-head! Lousy lint-head!

0:54:590:55:03

Ain't no more gold in that ground than in my socks!

0:55:030:55:07

Wise up and go to Atlanta and get a job that pays somethin'!

0:55:070:55:12

Soak your head in a gin bottle! In a gin bottle! Stop it, Buck, Will!

0:55:120:55:19

-Go back where you come from! Go back where you come from!

-Why don't you try and make me go?

0:55:190:55:27

We'll make you! We're going to make you, lint-head!

0:55:270:55:31

-We'll make you! > Ty-Ty!

-Drop that shovel, Buck!

0:55:310:55:36

Come on, you lint-head!

0:55:400:55:42

All you lousy farm boys think you're tough, huh?

0:55:420:55:47

All right, Buck!

0:55:540:55:56

-Get him, Buck!

-What in a pluperfect hell is goin' on down there?

0:56:000:56:05

Stop that! Stop that fightin', you hear me?

0:56:050:56:09

I won't have no fightin' on my land! Stop it!

0:56:090:56:14

By God!

0:56:140:56:16

Stop that! Get off there! Stop that fightin'! What's the matter with you two?

0:56:180:56:24

Just hold it!

0:56:240:56:27

What have you got to fight about? There's plenty of gold for us all!

0:56:270:56:32

We wasn't fightin' about the gold.

0:56:320:56:35

He acts like he's better than us!

0:56:350:56:37

Every time he comes here, he invites a beating!

0:56:370:56:41

Shame we can't keep a peaceful family. That's what I aim to have.

0:56:410:56:47

If I can't have it, I'll leave that gold and go back to grubbin' cotton.

0:56:470:56:52

Tell him to stop tom-cattin' around my wife!

0:56:520:56:56

-Is Griselda in this?

-I didn't say a word about her.

0:56:560:57:00

No, he don't say nothin'. He just looks and that's plenty.

0:57:000:57:04

-Looks don't hurt anybody.

-He's ready to start somethin'.

-You bet!

0:57:040:57:10

Griselda, get in the house!

0:57:100:57:13

Now, Buck, it's just your imagination.

0:57:130:57:17

Will ain't after Griselda. Are you, Will?

0:57:170:57:21

-I ain't made my mind up about that.

-I'll kill him!

0:57:210:57:25

You're going to kill nobody!

0:57:260:57:29

Not on my land or anyplace else!

0:57:290:57:32

Get up on the ground and cool off.

0:57:320:57:34

You get heated up in this hole. It takes fresh air to get it outta you.

0:57:340:57:39

Go on up the house. Go on, Shaw! Go on, Buck!

0:57:390:57:44

Tell him to go home.

0:57:460:57:48

Yeah, Pa, tell him to go home.

0:57:480:57:51

Buck's right. I oughta go home.

0:58:000:58:03

I hope you don't mean that. I'm going to need all the help I can get.

0:58:030:58:08

The house is going to topple right into this hole if you dig any more!

0:58:080:58:13

I gotta go home. I gotta get that mill started.

0:58:150:58:19

That ain't what you're thinkin' about.

0:58:210:58:25

You're thinkin' about Griselda.

0:58:250:58:28

Will, you're going to kill yourself

0:58:280:58:31

if you go on that way!

0:58:310:58:33

Hot night.

1:00:281:00:31

Yeah, it's hot.

1:00:331:00:36

I couldn't sleep.

1:00:361:00:39

I couldn't sleep either.

1:00:391:00:41

CLATTER

1:01:041:01:07

I guess we did the right thing -

1:01:271:01:30

bustin' up.

1:01:301:01:32

I guess so.

1:01:381:01:40

No, don't come any closer.

1:01:431:01:46

I just want to touch you, feel the touch of you.

1:01:461:01:50

It won't stop there.

1:01:501:01:53

I just know it won't.

1:01:531:01:55

Griselda...

1:01:551:01:57

WHISTLING >

1:02:231:02:25

Dave!

1:02:441:02:46

Are you sure you divined the gold in just the right place?

1:02:471:02:52

You saw the willow pointin' down, didn't you?

1:02:521:02:56

That's right. Yeah.

1:02:561:02:59

Willow don't lie.

1:03:031:03:06

Why should it?

1:03:061:03:09

Pure scientific.

1:03:091:03:11

Mr Ty-Ty, you oughta be out raisin' cotton.

1:03:151:03:19

You're a good farmer. You used to be.

1:03:191:03:23

Felix, I'm sorry. I've just got to go on diggin'.

1:03:231:03:27

I got the fever. You can't stop the fever.

1:03:271:03:31

If it's as bad as that, why don't you go up to Augusta and borrow some money from your son, Jim Leslie?

1:03:311:03:39

There wouldn't be no sense in that.

1:03:391:03:41

Why not, Mr Ty-Ty? I hear he's rich. I ain't heard of a cotton broker that's poor.

1:03:411:03:48

He wouldn't help me. He won't speak to me on the street.

1:03:481:03:52

If he won't speak to me on the street, he won't lend me money!

1:03:521:03:57

You're his pappy. Ain't you, Mr Ty-Ty?

1:03:571:04:01

I reckon so.

1:04:011:04:04

Jim Leslie ain't been a bad man. He been a good one. He's practically a stranger.

1:04:051:04:12

-Felix...

-Yes, sir, Mr Ty-Ty?

1:04:121:04:15

I just got a wonderful idea.

1:04:161:04:19

I'm going to call on Jim Leslie.

1:04:201:04:22

He's my son, you know.

1:04:221:04:25

He's a rich man. He's a cotton broker. And no son of mine

1:04:251:04:29

is going to stand by and let his kin go hungry.

1:04:291:04:32

Shaw! Get the car ready!

1:04:321:04:35

Hurry up!

1:04:381:04:40

Hey, what are you doing?

1:05:041:05:07

You don't reckon I'm gonna run away from here? I never been so happy in all my born days!

1:05:071:05:14

You get up from there and get going.

1:05:141:05:16

I don't have to do what you say. It ain't me that's talkin'. It's this gun. Now get going!

1:05:161:05:23

Head straight for your home. Back to the swamp!

1:05:231:05:27

You ain't going to shoot me, are you?

1:05:291:05:32

I ain't, but this gun might.

1:05:321:05:35

I don't want to go.

1:05:351:05:37

I'm sorry, son, but you got to go. It's the only way to save this farm. Now you get going!

1:05:371:05:44

That's Jim Leslie's, all right!

1:05:581:06:01

Sure as God made little Adam!

1:06:011:06:03

Well, we're inside.

1:06:341:06:36

He'll have a hard time throwin' us out now before I tell him what we're after.

1:06:361:06:43

Did you ever see such a pretty thing in all your life?

1:06:431:06:47

Don't touch anything, Darlin' Jill. I won't.

1:06:471:06:51

Everything looks so shiny.

1:06:511:06:54

-Looks like it's got goose grease on it somehow.

-Yeah.

1:06:541:06:59

-So clean. Just cleaned and cleaned every day of the year.

-Be careful.

1:06:591:07:04

Jim Leslie lives in fine style, all right!

1:07:051:07:10

I'm mighty proud of the way my boy has made his way in the world.

1:07:101:07:15

Oh, that's purty!

1:07:361:07:39

Big as a window sash!

1:07:401:07:43

Almost as beautiful as them new Coca Cola signs they're puttin' on the highway comin' into Georgia.

1:07:431:07:51

Oh, brother! The time and patience it must've took to do that!

1:07:521:07:57

Look at those leaves

1:07:571:08:00

on the trees. Almost like real!

1:08:001:08:03

I don't know.

1:08:031:08:05

What do you need a picture for?

1:08:051:08:08

You spend a half dollar on gasoline, drive into the woods and see the real thing.

1:08:081:08:14

Jill! Darlin' Jill!

1:08:141:08:17

Now you done it.

1:08:171:08:20

-Probably worth more money than we were going to borrow.

-Pick it up!

1:08:201:08:25

Evening, son.

1:08:331:08:36

What are you doing here?

1:08:361:08:39

Well, now, son.

1:08:391:08:41

You know you're pleased to see us.

1:08:411:08:44

-Don't put on that you're not.

-I didn't hear any doorbell.

1:08:451:08:50

We don't ring no bells in my family. We just walk in.

1:08:521:08:58

What did you come here for?

1:08:581:09:00

Well, it's important, son.

1:09:011:09:04

Money, I suppose. Why don't you dig it out of the ground?

1:09:041:09:09

Is that a nice way to talk to your only dad?

1:09:091:09:13

That's what you came for, isn't it?

1:09:131:09:16

Not at all.

1:09:161:09:19

All I need is the wherewithal to buy feed and seed for my share croppers,

1:09:191:09:25

so that I can dig down another 20 feet and locate my grandpa's gold.

1:09:251:09:32

There's no gold there. You know that as well as I do. You've been digging for 15 years!

1:09:321:09:39

You'll be diggin' holes the day you die.

1:09:391:09:42

All right, there's the money. Now take it and go on home.

1:10:071:10:12

Somethin' got into you, Jim Leslie.

1:10:191:10:22

At an early age.

1:10:221:10:24

You're different from the rest of us. I don't know why.

1:10:241:10:30

You act like you're ashamed of me.

1:10:311:10:34

I don't see how that can be because I'm your father.

1:10:341:10:38

You take on like you don't know who I am and where you're from.

1:10:381:10:43

Well, I'm sorry for you, son.

1:10:431:10:46

You married a widow.

1:10:481:10:50

Not because you loved her. You just had to have her.

1:10:501:10:55

Not because you got caught with the bases loaded by her pa. You married her to get a house and a fortune.

1:10:551:11:03

All you got left is a house full of breakable dishes!

1:11:041:11:09

Well, son...

1:11:421:11:44

I guess we'd better be going.

1:11:461:11:49

Pa, why don't you fix yourself a drink?

1:11:511:11:55

I don't take a drink, son.

1:11:561:11:59

There's some fresh fruit in the dining room. Why don't you go and help yourself?

1:12:001:12:06

I don't mind if I do.

1:12:061:12:09

You, too, Darlin' Jill, Griselda. Go on in.

1:12:101:12:14

-Is that the dining room way down there?

-That's right, Pa.

-I'm hungry.

1:12:191:12:24

Griselda, some time when you're in town, come up to see me. This is my office number. Call me.

1:12:241:12:32

-I wouldn't do that.

-Why not?

1:12:321:12:35

Because it isn't right. That's why.

1:12:351:12:37

I'm going to be lookin' for you. You're going to come up and see me.

1:12:371:12:42

-No, I'm not.

-I bet that's your only pair of shoes. Jim Leslie will buy you the whole shoe store.

1:12:421:12:50

I'm going to come out to that farm and bring you right back to this house.

1:12:511:12:57

You don't love Buck.

1:12:571:13:00

This pullin' and pawin' at Griselda has got to stop!

1:13:001:13:05

I've got to apologise for Jim Leslie, Griselda.

1:13:051:13:09

My family ain't known for their politeness to women. Come on.

1:13:091:13:15

I'll be comin' out there to get you one of these days, Griselda.

1:13:151:13:20

Thanks for the money, son.

1:13:241:13:27

Consider it a loan.

1:13:271:13:29

Did you get it, Pa? Did you get it?

1:13:401:13:43

I reckon I did. Look at this big wad of greenbacks.

1:13:431:13:47

Pa, you know what I'd like to get now? I'd like to get me a raincoat.

1:13:471:13:52

-What for?

-Well, it's fixin' to rain, Pa.

-It can't rain now. I don't want it to rain yet awhile.

1:13:521:13:59

I can't dig under water too well.

1:13:591:14:02

-If it does rain, I want to put on a raincoat.

-Peel off your clothes and let your skin take care of the rest.

1:14:021:14:09

God never made a finer raincoat than a man's skin. Let's go!

1:14:091:14:14

Ty-Ty, I'm kinda thirsty. Can we stop in town and get a quick beer?

1:14:141:14:19

It wouldn't be showin' a proper respect for Jim Leslie's money to spend it in a saloon.

1:14:191:14:26

Just one beer, Pa. One beer, Pa.

1:14:261:14:30

-I never been to a saloon in my life and I ain't going to start now.

-You can wait in the car, Pa.

1:14:301:14:37

TOOTS HORN

1:15:031:15:06

Hey there, good-lookin'! Yeah, you with the fancy hat!

1:15:121:15:18

Oh, big man! Are you honkin' for me?

1:15:181:15:23

Hello, Grandpa!

1:15:231:15:25

Grandpa, you want to dance with me?

1:15:251:15:28

Come on! Come on! Get the others and get this car rollin'. We're in a street of sin and shame!

1:15:291:15:36

-Go on up there and come back and tell us about it!

-Stop teasin'! Go fetch the boys out of that saloon.

1:15:361:15:44

Hey, Grandpa! Come on and buy me a drink.

1:15:441:15:48

Come on, Grandpa. I know what's wrong with you. You're bashful.

1:15:501:15:56

-Leave me be. Griselda, get me out of this!

-Leave our pa alone.

1:15:561:16:01

Your pa? Who did you think he was?

1:16:011:16:04

What do you mean honkin' your horn under my window?

1:16:041:16:08

I was only tryin' to get my family out of that saloon.

1:16:081:16:13

You made me come all the way down here for nothin'. I'll hoodoo you, you tight-fisted miser!

1:16:131:16:20

You girls get those boys out of that saloon right now!

1:16:241:16:29

Come on, leave me alone!

1:16:291:16:32

I told you not to mix beer with cognac.

1:16:341:16:37

I feel fine. Leave me alone. I feel fine!

1:16:371:16:41

Leave me alone.

1:16:411:16:44

-How did this happen?

-He tried to drink Will under the table, Pa, and I guess he lost.

1:16:441:16:51

-This is what a saloon can do to a man.

-I stuck to beer.

-It's all the devil's brew.

1:16:511:16:58

-All my life I've drunk plain well water. Get Will and Rosamund and we'll be on our way.

-Will!

1:16:581:17:05

Will Thompson!

1:17:051:17:08

Hey, Rosamund!

1:17:081:17:11

Come on, Will!

1:17:111:17:14

Rosamund, come on!

1:17:141:17:16

Give me the power! I'll turn on the power!

1:17:161:17:20

Give me the everlasting light of life, the power!

1:17:201:17:25

You beautiful girl...

1:17:261:17:29

-Keep your hands off of her, you lint-head!

-I'll kiss my girl all I want!

-Keep your hands off of her!

1:17:291:17:37

I'm sorry I had to do that, son-in-law.

1:17:511:17:55

Rosamund, you and Will have to go back to Peachtree Valley.

1:17:551:18:00

I don't seem to be able to keep my family together.

1:18:001:18:05

HORN TOOTS >

1:18:051:18:08

There you are, Darlin' Jill. I've been lookin' all over for you folks.

1:18:101:18:15

Uncle Felix told me you went to Jim Leslie's house. He said you'd be in the first bar drinkin' up his money.

1:18:151:18:22

I like Jim Leslie. I got his vote.

1:18:221:18:25

You horse head! Jim Leslie don't even live in the right county to make his vote count.

1:18:251:18:32

-Is that a fact?

-Pluto, I couldn't be happier to see you.

1:18:321:18:36

-Is that a fact?

-You come at just the right time. You drive Will and Rosamund back to Peachtree Valley.

1:18:361:18:44

Oh, no. Not again.

1:18:441:18:46

Come on, honey waffle.

1:18:461:18:49

Come on, Will. Let's get up.

1:18:501:18:53

Ty-Ty...

1:18:541:18:57

I'm going to pull the switch and light up the whole world tonight.

1:18:571:19:01

Yes, honey. Everything will be all right.

1:19:011:19:04

-Don't "yes" me like I'm a baby.

-I'm not, honey.

-I'm going to pull the switch... Leave me alone!

1:19:041:19:12

I'm going to pull the switch and light up the whole world, Ty-Ty. I'm tellin' you!

1:19:121:19:18

Pa... Pa, I'm afraid to go back home.

1:19:271:19:32

Will's not himself. He's never been this wild.

1:19:321:19:36

He's going to do somethin'. I know it.

1:19:361:19:39

For six months, I've been livin' from day to day hopin' that tomorrow would change him. But I need help.

1:19:391:19:46

Griselda, you're the only one he might listen to.

1:19:461:19:51

Rosamund, honey, Griselda can't go.

1:19:531:19:56

Pa, Pa, please. Make Griselda listen to me.

1:19:561:20:00

I ache for you, daughter, but Griselda has to make up her own mind.

1:20:001:20:07

Griselda? Don't ask me.

1:20:071:20:11

Who can I ask? Buck hates Will.

1:20:111:20:14

You hate him, too? No.

1:20:141:20:17

You know I don't.

1:20:171:20:20

You love him, same as I do. That's why you've got to help him. Griselda, I'm beggin' you.

1:20:201:20:27

< Please!

1:20:271:20:29

All right.

1:20:291:20:32

All right, I'll go with you till he sobers up.

1:20:321:20:36

Thank you, Griselda. Thank you.

1:20:361:20:41

Well, he's still sleeping, thank goodness.

1:21:141:21:18

Here it is dark, I wasted another day.

1:21:201:21:24

I haven't counted a single vote. I gotta be gettin' home.

1:21:241:21:28

Besides, this ice cream's gettin' too cold to eat.

1:21:281:21:32

Wait a while longer till he wakes up. He's fond of peach ice cream.

1:21:321:21:38

I gotta go, too. Buck'll be wild.

1:21:381:21:41

Stay a while. I don't want to be here alone with him.

1:21:411:21:45

Are you scared of Will?

1:21:451:21:48

Your own husband?

1:21:481:21:50

I reckon I am, the way he's been actin' lately.

1:21:511:21:56

-You waited till I woke up, didn't you?

-Yes, Will.

1:22:031:22:07

I'm turnin' on the power tonight.

1:22:081:22:11

Will, wouldn't you like some peach ice cream?

1:22:111:22:15

-Never worked in the cotton mill, did you?

-No, sir.

1:22:151:22:19

I gotta be gettin' home. I've got to get elected. It's mighty important, Will.

1:22:191:22:25

-Know what it's like in a company town when there's no work?

-No, sir.

-Well, I'll tell you.

1:22:251:22:32

Did you ever shoot a rabbit, go and pick him up,

1:22:321:22:36

and when you lifted him up in your hand, felt his heart poundin' like...I don't know what?

1:22:361:22:43

Have you?

1:22:431:22:46

Well, I have.

1:22:461:22:49

I have!

1:22:501:22:52

-Where are you goin'?

-To turn the power on.

-No!

1:22:521:22:57

Stop him!

1:22:571:23:00

Somebody please stop him!

1:23:001:23:02

Hiya, Will. What you going to do?

1:23:361:23:39

I'm going to break open the gates and turn on the power.

1:23:391:23:43

You mustn't do this, Will. You're going to get in trouble.

1:23:581:24:03

-I'm going to open the mill. I promised the whole valley.

-You can't do this alone. You'll get killed!

1:24:031:24:10

-Do you care?

-Of course. I would have waited for you if you'd asked me. All my life!

1:24:101:24:17

I would have waited.

1:24:171:24:19

All my life is now.

1:24:191:24:22

Don't shut me out, Griselda.

1:24:221:24:24

I won't shut you out, Will.

1:24:241:24:27

I won't shut you out.

1:24:271:24:30

It's been a long time since we've seen the inside of this building.

1:24:561:25:01

There's nothing here any more, Will.

1:25:011:25:03

It's all here, the same as the day I left. A waste!

1:25:031:25:08

Nothing but waste!

1:25:081:25:10

Griselda, when the power's on, the valley hums.

1:25:131:25:18

There's meat and potatoes on every table

1:25:181:25:22

and people have other things to laugh at.

1:25:221:25:26

When the power's off,

1:25:261:25:28

the valley's dead.

1:25:281:25:31

You see what I mean, Griselda?

1:25:311:25:33

You see why...

1:25:331:25:36

why I...

1:25:361:25:38

I got to turn on the power?

1:25:381:25:41

I've been talkin' about it too long.

1:25:411:25:44

Takes a man to turn on the power, not just a talker.

1:25:441:25:49

Just lookin' at you makes me feel like a man again.

1:25:491:25:53

How can I help you, Will?

1:25:531:25:56

Look at me. Just keep lookin' at me.

1:25:561:25:58

-Will, no.

-You sound like Rosamund.

-We both love you, Will.

1:25:581:26:03

-If I don't do it now, I'll never do it.

-Let's get outta here.

-Never been this close.

-Just think of me.

1:26:031:26:11

-You gotta go back to the house.

-Not without you.

-Go back to the house.

1:27:341:27:40

Hold on to her. Don't let her follow me.

1:27:401:27:44

Will!

1:27:541:27:56

CHEERING

1:28:031:28:06

It's the mill. He turned the mill on. Will turned the power on!

1:28:131:28:18

MACHINES ROAR

1:28:451:28:48

What are you doing there? This is crazy, Will!

1:28:521:28:57

ARGUING DROWNED OUT BY MACHINE NOISE

1:28:571:29:01

I'll shoot!

1:29:101:29:12

I didn't mean to hurt you, son.

1:29:311:29:33

What did I do? What did I do?

1:29:361:29:38

This is my job. Don't you see?

1:29:441:29:46

This is my job, Will Thompson!

1:29:461:29:49

Who'd go give an old man a job?

1:29:491:29:52

Don't you see?

1:29:521:29:54

Who's going to give me a job?

1:29:541:29:57

Get out of here, Will Thompson.

1:29:571:30:00

Go on, go on!

1:30:031:30:06

SHOUTING

1:30:201:30:23

SHOUTING STOPS

1:30:251:30:28

SIREN WAILS

1:30:551:30:58

I know!

1:32:411:32:44

Shaw, you get everybody a nice, cool glass of water, you hear?

1:33:251:33:30

Rosamund, why don't you just sit on the porch and rest a little?

1:33:441:33:50

What's the matter with you? Nothin'!

1:34:311:34:35

They didn't bury your husband! Please, Buck!

1:34:351:34:39

You don't want to talk about it? Nothing to talk about!

1:34:391:34:44

Have some regard for Rosamund.

1:34:441:34:47

Why did you chase after him? We'll cook dinner.

1:34:471:34:51

No-one's eatin' till I get an answer from her! Can't you talk?

1:34:511:34:56

Sure, but this isn't the time for it!

1:34:561:35:00

It's a shame you can't kill a man but once. Otherwise I'd be gunnin' for him right now!

1:35:001:35:06

You oughta be ashamed of yourself. You shut up!

1:35:061:35:10

You don't look ashamed for anything. You're a pair of loose fillies!

1:35:101:35:16

-If you ain't man enough to hold on to your wife, I'd hide my face! Stay out of it!

-Buck!

1:35:161:35:22

-Will's dead. Ain't that enough punishment?

-We're goin' on like this all the time

1:35:221:35:29

and we're gettin' further away from a happy life!

1:35:291:35:33

Hey, Pa! Why, I have the water here, Pa.

1:35:331:35:37

All of us ought to...

1:35:441:35:46

..sit down and think a little about livin'.

1:35:471:35:52

And how to do it.

1:35:521:35:55

-God didn't put us here to fight all the time.

-I don't want to hear no more about God.

1:35:581:36:05

If we don't have more love for each other, you'll have real sorrow, son. I tried to keep a peaceful family.

1:36:051:36:12

If you'd stop fightin', learn to smile and laugh just a little...

1:36:121:36:17

You talk like an old fool.

1:36:171:36:20

Maybe it sounds that way to you.

1:36:211:36:23

But you got the feeling of God in your heart.

1:36:231:36:28

You just can't find it.

1:36:291:36:32

What did God ever do for you?

1:36:321:36:34

I don't feel the way Buck does, but we ain't got a penny out of God's little acre.

1:36:341:36:41

You boys don't seem to catch on.

1:36:411:36:43

It's not important I get money out of it, but I can walk on it and feel God is there.

1:36:431:36:50

What's all this got to do with me and Griselda?

1:36:501:36:55

All you think about is the things you see or touch. That ain't livin'.

1:36:551:37:00

It's the things you feel down inside you.

1:37:001:37:04

If you felt more how Griselda feels inside her, no man could touch her.

1:37:041:37:09

That's just what I was gettin' at!

1:37:091:37:12

-What went on between you and Will?

-How will that make you feel better?

-I want to hear it from her!

1:37:121:37:20

-I'm not afraid to tell him.

-No!

-Stay out of it!

1:37:201:37:24

If I was you, when I went to bed tonight, I'd get down on my knees and try talkin' to God a little.

1:37:241:37:31

He can tell you things nobody else can and maybe how you ought to act with Griselda if you'll listen.

1:37:311:37:39

If there's anything in the world he's crazy about, it's seein' a man and a woman in love with each other.

1:37:401:37:47

And to forgive is part of lovin'.

1:37:471:37:50

When he sees that, he knows the world is runnin' along as slick as grease.

1:37:501:37:57

Buck will come along when he gets older. Try and be patient with him.

1:38:031:38:08

It takes some people a lifetime to learn some things and Buck is young.

1:38:081:38:13

I'm afraid he'll never learn. What is there to learn? Will wasn't bigger or stronger than me.

1:38:131:38:21

It wasn't the way he looked that made him different. It was the way he was made inside.

1:38:211:38:28

He could feel things and you can't!

1:38:281:38:31

You can't suck me in with that kind of talk. I want to know what you and Will did behind my back!

1:38:311:38:38

-Pluto, you were there. What happened?

-Nothing much.

1:38:381:38:42

What do you mean by nothing much?

1:38:421:38:45

Nothing much means nothing much.

1:38:451:38:48

Did you go deaf, dumb and blind to Peachtree Valley?

1:38:481:38:52

I was in that house the whole time. I saw nothin' more excitin' than coffee and cake and peach ice cream.

1:38:521:39:00

When that siren blew, we all knew that Will was dead.

1:39:001:39:04

That's a fact.

1:39:041:39:07

Now that's settled, let's go in and get some supper.

1:39:201:39:24

Come on, Rosamund.

1:39:241:39:27

We'll all get a good night's rest and tomorrow things will look a lot different.

1:39:271:39:34

I'm going back to Augusta. Do you care for a lift, Griselda?

1:39:341:39:40

I got a big, empty house. Plenty of room for you, too, Rosamund.

1:39:401:39:45

Look, son, you're welcome to stay for supper, but if you want to get back to Augusta, go on.

1:39:451:39:52

The girls are staying here.

1:39:521:39:55

All you've raised on this land is piles of dirt and empty holes!

1:39:551:40:01

-I'll strike a load soon.

-You've said that for years. Age didn't bring you sense.

1:40:011:40:07

I got sense you don't know about.

1:40:071:40:09

I hate the smell of this place. I've hated it since the day I was born.

1:40:091:40:15

Come and live with me in Augusta, Griselda.

1:40:151:40:19

You can have some new clothes, a new car, plenty of spending money.

1:40:191:40:25

Get in the house, Griselda.

1:40:281:40:31

-You can come live with me.

-Get your dirty hands off her! I'll kill you!

1:40:311:40:36

Pa!

1:40:481:40:51

-I love you, Pa!

-Feels like the end of the world has struck me!

1:41:041:41:09

Feels like...the bottom has dropped out from under me!

1:41:111:41:16

I feel like I'm sinking!

1:41:171:41:19

I can't help myself.

1:41:201:41:23

-Pa, don't talk like that.

-It's all my fault, Shaw!

1:41:231:41:28

Diggin' for gold...

1:41:281:41:30

Diggin' for gold!

1:41:301:41:33

-Never gave enough to my sons.

-It ain't true, Pa.

-Then they grow up big enough to kill each other!

1:41:331:41:41

God, give me strength.

1:41:421:41:44

Pa, please! >

1:41:481:41:50

Please, Pa!

1:41:501:41:53

Buck! I don't want any woman I can't hold on my own!

1:42:071:42:13

Go with Jim Leslie. I just happened to be around when you decided to get a husband. >

1:42:131:42:19

You get out of here. You get in your car, Jim Leslie.

1:42:191:42:24

Go back to Augusta where you belong.

1:42:251:42:28

If you ever show your face here again,

1:42:281:42:32

son of mine or no son of mine!

1:42:321:42:35

All right, Shaw.

1:42:591:43:02

Come on, Rosamund.

Darlin' Jill, Pluto,

1:43:081:43:11

Griselda.

1:43:111:43:13

We'll go in the house

1:43:131:43:16

and get some supper

1:43:161:43:19

and have a good night's sleep.

1:43:191:43:22

And maybe tomorrow will be a good day.

1:43:231:43:27

All right.

1:43:271:43:29

God...

1:44:041:44:06

give me strength...

1:44:061:44:09

..to spread out my arms to the end of my fields.

1:44:101:44:15

Let me fill up the holes

1:44:161:44:19

and make the land smooth.

1:44:191:44:22

You spared my sons.

1:44:221:44:24

I'll never dig another hole again.

1:44:251:44:28

Except to...

1:44:281:44:31

..to plant seeds for things to grow.

1:44:321:44:35

1:44:421:44:45

Why, you big horse head of a Sheriff!

1:45:041:45:08

And you big horse head of a Sheriff's wife to be!

1:45:081:45:12

You plantin' well, Shaw.

1:45:231:45:26

Yeah, I'm plantin'!

1:45:271:45:29

Whoa!

1:45:341:45:36

-# Now I told you about God's little acre

-Fare ye well, fare ye well

1:45:421:45:49

# Now I told you about God's little acre

1:45:491:45:53

# Diggin' in the moonlight, Diggin' in the sun

1:45:531:45:57

# Diggin' in the ground Till the diggin' was done

1:45:571:46:01

# Come over to God's little acre, Come over to God's little acre

1:46:011:46:06

# Come over to God's little acre, Come back home

1:46:061:46:11

# Come back home, come back home

1:46:111:46:14

# Come over to God's little acre, Come over to God's little acre

1:46:141:46:19

# Come over to God's little acre

1:46:191:46:22

# Come back...ho-o-o-o-ome! #
