What B&W movie ends with the line "Here comes the sun"?
February 12, 2015 7:00 AM   Subscribe

I saw a black and white movie on TV when I was younger, and it ended with a family (presumably farmers?), looking out a window or a door (or standing on a porch) as the sun rose, and the father says, "Well, here comes the sun." It stuck with me, but I can't seem to find what movie it was.

The movie felt quite old, I would guess the 50's at the latest. I want to say it was about the depression or the dust bowl, but I can't be certain.

There's a Russian movie called, Burnt by the Sun. That reminds me of the end of that movie.

The movie isn't black & white but it has a very old-fashioned feel.

I've taken a look, that wasn't it. It was spoken in English, I can still hear it in my head. I'm also pretty certain it was black and white.

My husband the movie buff said "There's an old movie called Sunrise, which that would fit perfectly, but it's silent." I wonder if maybe someone narrated that movie in some manner?

This is a color film, and the line doesn't appear at the end, but it might be what you're looking for.

The Yearling. There's a long rain, six days as I recall, with a hurricane and when the storm breaks, Gregory Peck says "Here comes the sun."

Look through these and see if anything jogs your memory.

It was "The Yearling". Thanks maxsparber! I got chills seeing that scene again.

It's so strange how memory works. I could have sworn it was black and white, and that they were inside a house when the line was delivered. I also was pretty sure it was the ending.

Also, that link to www.quodb.com will come in very handy in the future.

I also always remember the yearling as being black and white, for some reason.
