This heartwarming film about the tumult of teen romance and set in rural Mississippi stars Robby Benson and Glynnis O'Connor as youngsters caught up in the dizzy beauty of first love. Directed by Max Baer ("Macon County Line") from a script by Herman Raucher ("Summer Of '42"), the film was shot near the Tennessee backwoods of singer Bobbie Gentry's childhood. She newly recorded her ballad to augment a flavorful score by Academy Award(R) winner Michel Legrand. "Ode To Billy Joe" is tender and touching, set in a world where things don't always work out for young lovers. But where tragedy can nonetheless bring about a bittersweet triumph. Based on a 1967 hit song. A seventeen-year-old boy is seduced into a homosexual act. His guilt over the incident drives him to commit suicide by jumping off the Tallahatchie Bridge, leaving his girlfriend behind.

I purchased this movie as a Christmas gift for my cousin. She has been looking for this movie for years and had been unable to find it. I went to Walmart.com and searched and found it right away. When she received it she cried she was so happy. The movie was scheduled for delivery on Tuesday December 17 and she received it on Monday December 16. Thanks Walmart for making my cousins day and her Christmas a Merry one.
