I have known of this film for a very long time.
Up to now I have only seen about half an hour of it (blu ray) but
that has been enough to tell me that it is going to be great.
The image is very good the sound is fine. The acting is terrific.
This is some unusual film. A film to be cherished for that and other reasons.
The soundtrack by elmer Bernstein has echoes of his Magnificent 7 score
and that can only be a good thing.
Okay it may not follow the book precisely That idea used to be a problem
for me. Now I am just interested to see how a book is adapted.
This is a FILM and must be judged as a film.
Debut of Tina Louise and she is a very good actor as well as everything else!
I am positive this film is going to match up to the opening.
I am looking forward to the rest of it immensely. Cannot wait in fact.
Finished watching the film now and my enthusiasm is
undiminished. This film has all he virtues of its fifties origins.
It is loaded with depths of human drama and humanity.
No psychopaths here. Just men and women with human
weaknesses and desires. The sexual elements seem all the
stronger for being portrayed with that fifties restraint.
Comedy, drama and sex they are all here in abundance.
And most satisfying of all, a resolution that is also typically
fifties- style. A film to be watched again!...and again.

The one star is because of the missing of the announced subtitles which I need. The quality of the DVD is really very good but why they announce subtitles in english while there are no subtitles at all I can'tunderstand. They perhaps think that they sell more DVD,s that way and that is correct in my case. I think however that one must be able to rely on the announced things, this is not the first time that Amazon announced subtitles while they were not available.

Having read the book and really enjoyed it, I was very interested to see the film. The book was written in 1933 by Erskine Caldwell. It was extremely racy for that period and had plenty of press accordingly. Of course, compared to today it is nothing out of the ordinary, in fact, it's pretty tame.
The black & white film, which came out in 1958, has a slightly different storyline than the book; the ending is entirely different. An awful lot of the racy bits and dialogue are excluded completely, though the gals do plenty of smouldering, pouting and teasing.
Nevertheless, the acting is first class from all the cast and the storyline is fine, even if they are a bit of a strange bunch in terms of their affections toward each other. The star for me is Robert Ryan who puts in a sterling performance of Ty Ty Walden
The film is still well worth a watch and is quite witty in places as well. Pluto Swint (Buddy Hackett) is the comic figure and he does a fine job. The three women in the plot are all real good looking gals; you can see why Ty Ty is so proud of um.
The film is an `OK' for me whilst the book packed a punch - I very much preferred the book, but I wouldn't put anyone off spending a couple of hours watching this film as it's harmless and enjoyable enough, if nowhere near a classic.

Great watch if you have a sense of humour.Robert Ryan is particularly good, and funny in his increasingly desperate attempts to find gold on his land, whilst trying to keep in with God at the same time. Only a couple of the characters are what you could call 'all the ticket', so the film is largely played for laughs, which makes the few tragic moments sit a little strangely. Well worth a view, even just for the excellent Robert Ryan.

God's Little Acre is a feeble and irritating movie adaptation of a raunchy best selling novel. The film seems to have been intended as a comedy/drama but it fails on both counts, being neither funny nor dramatic.

All the characters in this movie are cardboard caricatures of stereotypical Southern hicks. With the exception of Griselda, played by Tina Louise, they are all mentally subnormal and almost everything they do and think makes no sense at all.

The one redeeming element of this dismal failure is Tina Louise's playing of the sexy Griselda. Her performance, combining eroticism with dignity, is most surprising partly because it was her first screen role and partly because God's Little Acre was directed by Anthony Mann who showed repeatedly throughout his career that he was a poor director of women.

This DVD from Cornerstone is a low quality product. The film is presented in the wrong aspect ratio and the picture quality is only slightly better than VHS.

This Cornerstone DVD can be recommended only to people who admire Tina Louise.
