    Synopsis


    The Thanksgiving Treasure
    Set in 1947, The Thanksgiving Treasure takes place on the small Nebraska farm of the Mills family. 11-year-old Addie Mills (Lisa Lucas) is of the opinion that the purpose of Thanksgiving is to turn an enemy into a friend--just as the Pilgrims and the Indians did back in 1620. Addie hopes to mend the long-entrenched differences between her father (Jason Robards) and a cranky, lonely old man (Barnard Hughes) who lives down the road a piece. Thanksgiving Treasure was first telecast November 18, 1973. It was written by Eleanor Perry as a sequel to her Emmy-winning TV special The House Without a Christmas Tree. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    The House Without a Christmas Tree
    Embittered by the death of his wife, James Mills (Jason Robards) refuses to buy a Christmas tree for his 10-year-old daughter Addie (Lisa Lucas). Undaunted, Addie wins a Christmas tree at school, which enrages her father. With the help of her loving grandmother (Mildred Natwick), Addie eventually melts her father's quick-frozen heart. Set in 1946 Nebraska (albeit filmed in Toronto), House without a Christmas Tree was adapted by Eleanor Perry from a story by Gail Rock. Made for television, the film first aired as a 90-minute CBS special on December 3, 1972. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
