    Before you start yanking trees and digging up the yard rent this movie :

    God's Little Acre (1958)
    Directed by
    Anthony Mann

    Erskine Caldwell (novel)
    Ben Maddow (front Philip Yordan)

    Genre: Drama

    Plot Summary:

    A poor farmer is obsessed with finding gold on his land supposedly buried by his grandfather. To find it he conveniently moves a marker out of his way that designates the land on which it rests as as God's Little Acre, where anything that comes from the ground will go to God's work. Eventually he abducts an albino to help him find the gold. Meanwhile, his daughter-in-law is suspected of fooling around with a labor activist out of work since the mill closed, and a local political hopeful actively seeks his daughter's hand in marriage.

    sheepdip, I saw it......when it came out. I didn't remember what it was about, so I will rent it and maybe get some pointers in finding treasures. Finding an albino might pose a problem, though. Would a really light skinned Mexican handyman do? If so, I already have one. ;) ;) :D :D

    I think the light skinned Mexican may work

    Finding Griselda, if you need help let me know.
