Plot
"Damn, damn, double-damn, triple-damn, hell!" declares a preteen boy in one of the more sedate moments of the 1963 "family picture" Spencer's Mountain . Henry Fonda plays the hard-drinkin', hard-livin', hard-cussin' patriarch of a fiercely independent West Virginia mountain family. When he's not railing against organized religion (he believes in God, but doesn't want others to tell him how), Fonda tries to scrape together enough money to build a new house for his huge brood. Maureen O'Hara co-stars as Fonda's baby-machine wife, while James MacArthur plays his college-bound son (the first in the family to get past high school), who carries on a robust romance with the daughter ( Mimsy Farmer ) of Fonda's boss. Spencer's Mountain is based on the Earl Hamner Jr . novel that later evolved into the long-running TV series The Waltons . — Hal Erickson
