Address Comments To:
THE GRASS HARP meanders all over the place. There is little focus to the story and the script doesn't draw in the audience, progressing at a laborious pace. The spirituality of the film is constantly confused with a crooked, philandering, traveling evangelist and several overtly stereotypical church hypocrites. The actual grass harp is Miss Dolly's description of hearing voices of the wind through the high grass and the branches of the willow tree. It gives the film just a touch of spiritism. Apart from the confusing spiritual message of the film, the script lacks sufficient punch to create an engrossing story.
