Description by OLDIES.com:

An endearing and quietly rhapsodic slice of Americana about a single year among the Norwegian immigrants in a Wisconsin farm town, Our Vines Have Tender Grapes enthralled 1945 audiences and critics with its timeless joys. Told from the viewpoint of little Selma (Margaret O'Brien), the film explores grand childhood adventures: making friends, a pet calf, Christmas, a terrifying trip down a flood-swollen river, a barn fire and a ride on a circus elephant's trunk. In a change-of-pace role, Edward G. Robinson is a revelation of wisdom and compassion as Selma's father, leading a fine cast that illuminates the profound power of everyday triumphs and sorrows.

Product Description:

This quiet story tells about the everyday trials of an immigrant Scandinavian family in Wisconsin.

Plot Synopsis:

A farming family learns that adopting a philosophy of simplicity will help them lead a better life.
The patriarch of this Scandanavian-American clan is Martinius Jacobson, a kind man of few words. He saves his earnings, and dreams of one day having a new barn.
Meanwhile, Jacobson must instill in his children the virtues that will help them become productive adults.
