- Sarah Plain and Tall (Hallmark Hall of Fame) [VHS] (1991) Glenn Close (Actor), Christopher Walken (Actor), Glenn Jordan (Director) | Rated: G | Format: VHS Tape GUARANTEED SCRATCH FREE - LIKE NEW - PREVIOUSLY ENJOYED - The most-watched made-for-television movie of the 1990s (50 million viewers upon first broadcast in 1991), this fine adaptation of Patricia MacLachlan's novel stars Glenn Close as Sarah, a Maine schoolteacher who responds to a Kansas farmer's newspaper ad seeking a bride. Set in 1910, the story follows Sarah's trial run as stepmother to the children of the widowed Jacob Witting (Christopher Walken). The tough part of the experiment is the conflicting expectations the would-be couple have over Sarah's role in the household.
In the year 1910, New Englander Sarah Wheaton answers an ad for a mail-order bride placed by Kansas Farmer Jacob Witting, a widower rearing two children. She begins a 30 day trial period as their guest and enthusiastically assumes all motherly responsibilities. As the days pass, this lonely, motherless family gradually opens their hearts to Sarah and slowly comes to terms with their painful past. Their lives again become spontaneous and magical. Love and respect replace fear and distrust as they join together as a family.
Color, English Language, Closed Captioned, Approximate Running Time 98 Minutes, Rated G for all audiences.
