Storyline

In 1969, John-Boy is a TV news anchorperson in New York and he is in the throes of writing a new book. He and a very pregnant Janet are making plans to return to Walton's Mountain for the celebration of John and Olivia's 40th wedding anniversary. Accompanying them to see the place John-Boy lived as a child is Aurora, a Time magazine photographer, who is doing a story on John-Boy. Meanwhile, Elizabeth arrives back from her travels and announces to Drew, who is still working at the mill with Ben, that she is back to stay. She is very upset to find that Drew did not wait for her, and that he has a new girlfriend. Also, problems arise for John-Boy and Janet because the longer John-Boy stays on the mountain, the more he becomes convinced that he would like to settle down there, raise his family, and continue with his writing whereas Janet wants to stay in New York.

Did You Know?

Trivia

John and Olivia celebrating their 40th anniversary, which would infer that they were married in 1929, does not fit into the timing of the series in the 30's and 40's. They should have been married at least 10 years longer. All of the Walton kids would have been born throughout the 20's. See more »

Goofs

The Walton's celebrate the fortieth anniversary of their parents; however, the original series started out c. 1933 with children born before 1929. See more »

For the Walton Fans
7 January 2004 | by lissiemdSee all my reviews

Since no one has made a comment on this movie, I thought I should. I saw it back on TV when I was 17 and liked it then very much, but I rewatched it the other day and was not at all happy with it. It seemed very pushed and unrealistic which is unlike the Walton series itself. Plus, everyone looked old and tired. When this movie first came out, there were rumors that there would be another movie in 2 years where Elizabeth and Drew get married. Well, that would be a good movie, but where is it? I would certainly watch it. As for this movie, while it is not up to par with The Walton Thanksgiving Reunion, if you are a true Walton fan you will enjoy it.
