 The Story of "The Waltons"
Although The Waltons was a fictional show, it was based on the life of author Earl Hamner, who grew up during the Great Depression in Schuyler (pronounced "Sky-ler"), Virginia, a small company town at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The cast was similar, except the joyful actor Will Geer became the new Grandpa, and the younger and healthier Ralph Waite and Michael Learned were cast as the parents (yes, Michael was a woman, something I never figured out).
Although the writing was sometimes unsteady, The Waltons was blessed with an abundance of good actors and good acting.
