  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Opening Narration: Early in September of 1939, shortly after Hitler invaded Poland, England delivered an ultimatum that Germany withdraw her troops. And while war clouds were bulding over Europe our family was to face a disturbing conflict over the arrival of a new and controversial figure in our community.

    • Closing Narration: Hank Buchanan was to remain our minister for a good many years to come, and while he remained, in Corabeth Godsey's words, "a most unorthodox young man," he was a good man and a godly man. The hawk returned, on the day we heard over the radio that Russian bomber and strafing planes had hit Poland from the east; the world would never again be the same.

  • NOTES (3)

    • With this episode, the show skipped over roughly a full year, jumping from spring 1938 two episodes ago to fall of 1939 in this episode.

    • We learn that Rev. Fordwick has left Walton's Mountain and taken up missionary work. The reason for the change in pastors is that John Ritter had just landed the role of Jack Tripper on Three's Company.

    • A shortened version of the theme song is used for season six as both Richard Thomas and Ellen Corby had left the cast. Ralph Waite and Michael Learned alternate for top billing in the opening credits starting with this episode.
