Summary
The primitive, ribald Georgia rustics of Erskine Caldwell's best-selling novel are brought brilliantly to the screen in the widely acclaimed American classic. Provocative for it's day, the frank and sexy novel has lost none of it's zest in this transformation to celluloid. In fact, the changes necessitated by the nature of movie-making may have made it better. Robert Ryan, in what many critics claim as the role of his career, plays Ty Ty Walden, the poor white farmer convinced that there is a golden treasure buried somewhere on his land. He spends years digging up the farm, littering the fields with empty holes, in his fruitless quest for riches. His family and his share-croppers languish in poverty. The 'Little Acre' referred to in the title is that bit of land set aside as an offering to the church. But in the simple and direct way of country folk, the acre is moveable if it is thought to contain the treasure. It's not sacrilege or disrespect but the honest bargain of a simple man
