Description by Timeless Media Group:
In Morning Glory, Will Parker (Christopher Reeve) arrives in the small town of Whitney, after spending five years in Huntsville Prison for killing someone in La Grange, Texas. Through an ad in the local paper, Will discovers that Emily (Deborah Raffin), a recently widowed mother of two small boys, is actively looking for a husband and father. Star-crossed loners, Will and Emily decide to make a go of their collective plight and Will moves into the barn on her farm. When a local woman is found murdered, Will is set up to take the fall. Excellent performances by Reeve and Raffin, and standout supporting roles filled by Nina Foch and Lloyd Bochner take this tale of love and redemption up a notch.
An ex-con and a pregnant widow fall for each other in this romantic adaptation of LaVyrle Spencer's 1989 novel.
The country is in the midst of the Great Depression, and Elly Dinsmore has been having trouble maintaining her Georgia farm and rearing her two kids ever since the recent death of her husband. Desperate for help, and with another child on the way, she puts a classified ad in a newspaper for a new spouse.
The man who shows up at her door is Will Parker, just released from prison for murdering a prostitute. In spite of her initial reluctance, Elly decides to take him in and the two soon become romantically involved.
But tragedy strikes when someone murders the small town's resident floozy -- and Will becomes the prime suspect. The brutal sheriff, Reese Goodloe, happily arrests the ex-con.
