Dorothy McGuire in Friendly Persuasion

Friendly Persuasion

1956 NR

Jess and Eliza Birdwell (Gary Cooper and Dorothy McGuire) are devoted Quaker parents in Indiana during the height of the Civil War. The Birdwells' religion opposes violence, but as Confederate forces march closer -- looting and burning as they go -- the community prepares a defense. However, the family's nonviolent stance is tested when their son, Josh (Anthony Perkins), decides he wants to fight for the North.
