The Little Minister Big on Love
- Debbie Ramsey
One of the best love stories - ever. When love falls on you or one falls In love it matters not if you are ready or not. This movie touches on the impossible and the less likely for two people who are on opposite poles find a middle ground called love. John Beal's subtle facial expressions speak volumes. His astonishment at how he was manipulated yet he cannot confess is priceless. The heavy Scottish accent took some getting use to. Finally caught the rhythm of the characters on the 6th time watching the movie. The outdoor shots and indoors shots are so authentic of the times (1840). A tender love story. One can catch the very moment when The Little Minister falls head over heals, despite his will, in love with Kathrine Hepburn's character (Babbie).I have watched this movie at least twenty times and each time find something new about the character. I would love seeing this movie made over in today's modern times. I absolutely adore and love this movie. Wish I too had a" Little Minister" of my own! Who will stand up for the woman he loves - not matter what.
Love Changes Everything
Fell in love w/John Beal. Could not take my eyes off of him - it was his performance that just captivated my interest in how in the world could a young minister trying very hard to win over his community's approval. Taking care of his Mother whose strength came through as humbling and sincere. I was just riveted to see how in the world Katherine Hepburn's character would break down barriers of puritan religious traditions. When the pastor (John Beal) discovered he was in love w/what the community referred to KH's character as being a Gypsy - living in the forest and she must be contained for she represented everything they were not. Free, whimsical and spiritual not religious. Through fate, when their love was revealed it was just something to behold how the characters managed to engaged the church community to see what love really is... having no barriers. This is one of my all times best love movies - EVER! If you appreciate love stories this is the grand daddy of them all. Five stars today, tomorrow and forever.

I thought it was an adorable movie. For one thing, I like the setting of the movie. I enjoy Scottish humor, in the movies. The story was adequate, and somewhat exciting, because, I was trying to figure how Katharine Hepburn,and the minister was going to get together...especially, because of all the pride and gossiping in the community.The comedic timing was perfect. And I loved how fiesty, the people were. Anytime the horn was blown in the village, every light would go on, all at the same time. The men loved a good fight. Most of the actors use to play inalot of the Irish or Scottish parts. These character actors had long careers as well.
The Little Minister (1934)
- James Higgins
It's a bit too talky and although Katherine Hepburn isn't bad, it's not one of her more memorable roles or performances. Good production, fine art direction and costumes. The score is good as well. The story is a little bland and it's a bit too long.
