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.
