Christmas Comes To Willow Creek
TV-Movie 1987 VHSRip
Starring John Schneider and Tom Wopat (Dukes of Hazzard), and Kim Delaney, with Hoyt Axton.
Two brothers' lives are changed forever when they hit the road to a snow-bound Alaskan village in Christmas Comes to Willow Creek.
Brothers Ray and Pete had been feuding for years. So, when their ailing father asks them to drive a semi-truck full of gifts and supplies from California to the isolated Alaskan village of Willow Creek, they agree - reluctantly. Along the way, they pick up trouble when they're joined by Jessie, who is Ray's estranged wife and Pete's ex-girlfriend, who is carrying her own secret. Then, a blizzard strands their truck deep in the Alaskan wilderness. Miles from help, with time running out fast, they realize only a miracle can save them. Now, throw in the local cannery shutting down and putting most of the local folks out of work. As they are all about to be reminded, Christmas is the season for miracles.
This movie was requested, and I must admit, seeing John Schneider and Tom Wopat as the stars, I was a bit skeptical about this movie. I was very pleasantly surprised to find a well-written, well-acted story that really kept my attention. And I'm a sucker for a happy ending! A great family Christmas story.
