Summary, etc.: Will Wright dreams of playing baseball in the big leagues and is ready to sacrifice anything to make it happen. But in South Carolina during the 1920s, the only path to pro baseball is through the local textile mill team. Against the wishes of his wealthy father, Will leaves his family and privileged life behind to work in the harsh conditions at Newton Mill. His natural talent on the field makes him the rising star of the mill-league team-and also earns him a dangerous rival as well as criticism from his father for his association with working class undesirables." Milltown Pride is set in a time and place of deep social and spiritual division. As a so-called Town-Boy," Will lives a sheltered and ideal life marked by games of croquet and Sunday School picnics while the local Mill workers live a hand to mouth existence often falling prey to the temptation of the local moonshine which pervades the prohibition era south. But Will learns that he is not so different from the mill-workers as he thought. And when famous real-life evangelist, Billy Sunday (played by David Burke) comes to town, Will discovers that his sheltered life only masks his real need for repentance and forgiveness. Milltown Pride is an entertaining evangelistic movie that recalls a bygone era while conveying relevant truths for today.
