| This movie is Funny and particularly true of many war brides who escaped to the USA as seen in the movies
I saw Johnny Bull both in the theater, The Belgrave, in Coventry, England and on Television here in the United States.

Kathy is known to me as a cousin and I remember all to well how proud all of us relatives were getting all dressed up and going to see our Kath's play at The Belgrave Theatre.

The play was great and explained so much more to me about my cousin who, as the story went, ran off and married this rich American she met during the war.

Kathy was excited following the play's success to have the story brought to the big screen, she was even more excited that the great Colleen Dewhurst was to play her Mother-in-Law. The movie came out and was aired on television. I was thrilled with the great production, stunned with the performances from the actors and completely drawn into the life and hardships of the cold miners and their families in Pennsylvania. I completely understood how baffled my cousin must have been arriving to the mines of Pennsylvania when it was the bright lights of Los Vegas she was expecting. I smiled knowing that my cousin had only seen feel good movies of New York and Hollywood during the war, Pennsylvanian coal mines did not exist in those movies. The writing explained to story so well.

This movie is a "must see. " If you have ever wondered how your family ended up living in the United States, this story tells of one of those ways. Her story goes on to include some the struggles that accompany the adventure.
