Description by OLDIES.com:

Vacationing at a ski resort, retired screen diva Norma Shearer noticed a picture of pretty Jeanette Morrison. In no time Jeanette had a screen test, a new name -- Janet Leigh -- and the lead opposite heartthrob Van Johnson in The Romance of Rosy Ridge. Coltish, wide-eyed and talented, Leigh was the ideal choice to play a coltish, wide-eyed beauty in this poignant love story set in the post-Civil War Ozarks, where folks are still divided blue versus gray. When an ex-soldier (Johnson) comes to the troubled town wearing military britches so faded no one can tell the original color, he gets the locals all riled up -- especially when he courts the daughter (Leigh) of an ex-Johnny Reb (Thomas Mitchell) who reckons the newcomer may be a damned Yankee!

Rating 5.0 A true rosy romance! Movie Lover: from Southeast -- September, 26, 2011

A wonderful family film. My favorite Civil War movie and one of my favorite romantic films. It is not a romantic comedy (as labeled on some sites) but a thought-provoking look at the nature of human decency, moral courage, and the foundations of human affection.

Finally, this movie is available on DVD! As a reminder of where we've been (as a nation) and where we're going, the film will be shown each year in the film and politics course I teach at a public university.

Post Script: "Romance" was Janet Leigh's first Hollywood movie. Later, she wrote that while the movie was being filmed, there was a magical feeling in the air. Viewers will have no trouble seeing why!
