Description by OLDIES.com:
An Iowa druggist becomes embittered when his son's life is cut short during World War II. The grieving father, helped by a friendly spirit, goes on a voyage of discovery and reconciliation.
An Iowa drugstore owner (Don Ameche) becomes embittered when his son is killed in World War II. The druggist believes that the boy's life was cut short before he had an opportunity to truly appreciate his existence. The grieving father is shown the error of his assumption by the ghost of his grandfather (Harry Carey), who through flashbacks details the good things about the son's short term on Earth, and the wonderful life that the druggist himself has enjoyed. Frances Dee plays Don Ameche's wife, while Ann Rutherford portrays his son's girl (who in turn is played in a flashback sequence by former Little Rascal Darla Hood). HAPPY LAND was suitable wartime propaganda, though it doesn't play quite as movingly today.
