Join in the fun as we watch this classic 1956 film.

Jonathan, an artist working for a Massachusetts society to paint frontier scenes at a remote army post, is away from Boston so long that his fiancée, Cynthia, chaperoned by her Aunt Agatha, travel to Fort Alden looking for him. She finds him enjoying the company of the storekeeper's daughter as well as mixed up with a Mohawk Chief's daughter, all while a vengeful settler begins stirring up war for his own gain.

Enjoy the film and discuss some of the liberties Hollywood took with history to tell this legend.

Charming love story set on the Erie Canal in the mid-19th Century. A farmer works on the canal to earn money to buy a farm. He meets a cook on a canal boat, but she can't even consider leaving the exciting life on the canal for a banal one on a farm...

Jotham Klore is the leading canal boater on the Erie Canal. He's also a bullying braggart. His cook, Molly Larkins, loves working on the canal. Young Dan Farrow signs onto another boat, owned by Samson Weaver, with plans to save enough money to buy a farm. Dan and Molly fall in love, but their romance runs aground on the conflict between his love of farming and her devotion to the canal.

This film is adapted from the play that was based on the book Rome Haul by Walter D. Edmonds.
