Little House: The Last Farewell was the third and last TV movie based on the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder (which also inspired the long-running TV series), though it was telecast out of sequence, shown before the second film, Little House: Look Back to Yesterday. This valedictory adventure of the Ingalls family finds their hometown of Walnut Grove being purchased by an evil miner (the ancestor, no doubt, of the evil land developers seen in all those Spielberg-produced films). Rather than allow themselves to be thrown off their land, Pa and Ma Ingels (Michael Landon and Karen Grassle), in concert with the rest of the townsfolk, take arms against a sea of troubles. But when ordered to evacuate the premises by the Law, the Walnut Grove residents exact a more spectacular method of getting even with the miner. The "surprise" ending of The Last Farewell, in which Walnut Grove is dynamited into oblivion, was the worst-kept secret of the 1983-1984 season. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
Little House on the Prairie: Bless All the Dear Children
A baby kidnapping strikes the Ingalls family in this made-for-television movie which was based on the popular series Little House on the Prairie. In this story, Laura (Melissa Gilbert) and her husband Almanzo's (Dean Butler) baby, Rose, is kidnapped during the Christmas holiday season. The family goes in search of the child and finds a woman who stole the baby because she wanted a child of her own. In keeping with the show's family-values tone, they try to help the woman find a needy child at an orphanage. ~ Bernadette McCallion, Rovi
Little House on the Prairie: Look Back to Yesterday
Although the NBC television series Little House on the Prairie ran its course in March of 1983, producer/star Michael Landon managed to extend the property's life for an additional year with the aid of three expensively mounted TV-movie sequels. The first of these was Little House: Look Back to Yesterday, in which 19th century farmer Charles Ingalls (Landon) paid a return visit to Walnut Grove. During his stay, Charles learns to his horror that his son Albert (Matthew Laborteaux), a doctor in training, has contacted a blood disease that nearly always results in a slow and painful death. The other citizens are sympathetic, but have problems of their own -- namely, an economic recession that threatens to destroy the community. Of the original cast members, only Karen Grassle (Caroline Ingalls) was conspicuous by her absence, while Victor French pulled double duty as the film's director and in his familiar role of Isaiah Edwards (NBC publicity at the time suggested that Landon himself directed, though all print ads gave credit where credit was due). Look Back to Yesterday first aired on December 12, 1983. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
