The Waltons captured the imagination and the heart of a nation. During its eight year run, the show was an American institution that celebrated our best virtues-honesty, loyalty, and self-reliance. In this retrospective, Earl Hamner, the creator of the Waltons, takes a fond look back at the characters who struck a responsive chord, that moved us to laughter and tears. Grandma's stroke, John-Boy's first love, Ma's paralysis and Grandpa Walton's death are all recalled with loving sentiment. Hamner also takes us to Schuyler, Virginia to meet his family, the real people who inspired America's most beloved television series. If the Waltons touched you, this moving remembrance belongs in your collection

Garden of Evil: Gary Cooper, Richard Widmark and Cameron Mitchell portray three somewhat disreputable 19th-century soldiers of fortune, en route to California to prospect for gold. Stopping over in a tiny Mexican village, the three men are hired by Susan Hayward to rescue her husband, who is trapped in a gold mine in hostile Indian territory. The threesome agree to the expedition, their interest piqued by the possibility of picking up some gold themselves. During the harrowing journey, the party's already frayed nerves are aggravated when the men become attracted to Hayward. The group arrives at the mine's location--the Garden of Evil, so named because the Indians regard it as the domain of evil spirits. During the escape, Hayward's husband (Hugh Marlowe) is killed by the Indians, as is Mitchell. Cooper and Widmark play cards to decide who will take Hayward to safety and who will cover them while they flee. Cooper wins--but later discovers that Widmark had cheated in order to sacrifice himself

Harriet Craig, to all outward appearances, is a devoted wife and homemaker. But beneath the surface of her meticulously kept, richly appointed mansion, Harriet is a neurotic perfectionist and a stickler for absolute cleanliness.

When it appears that Walter will be promoted and travelling abroad on business, Harriet springs into action to squelch his plans. Harriet's monstrous selfishness and essential heatred of men, a syndrome initiated in girlhood when her father abandoned Harriet and her mother, at last becomes obvious to Walter. In a dramatic final confrontation, Walter finally realizes he too was just another possession in Harriet's loveless, life-size dollhouse
