REVIEWS:





"['The Homecoming'] is one of those programs that deserves to be watched every Christmas Eve, just like clockwork. Who could forget the great scene at the end of the movie, when John Walton relays his encounter with Santa Claus? Watching him tell the kids of how Santa's sleigh 'went flying across the sky and landed right on top of this house!', to me, is one of the best scenes in TV history. Watching that scene, you'd swear those kids were not actors at all,
but just wide-eyed excited kids hanging on dad's every word.
Thank you, Earl Hamner, Jr., for a timeless holiday treasure."
