Hume Cronyn and James Earl Jones head a cast that includes Piper Laurie, Ed Begley, Jr., Shelley Duvall, David Selby, and Frederic Forrest. Cronyn, who celebrated his 86th birthday in July, says, "I wanted to do this movie because it's a wonderful Horton Foote story about a widowed old man, whom I play, who lives alone on his family farm. His dauehter and son-in-law believe there' s oil under his land and they bring in drills and pumps. My character watches them as they're driven by false hopes and, perhaps, by the worst sin of all, greed." In his own life, Cronyn, who was widowed a few years ago when his wife, Jessica Tandy, died after a long, happy marriage that was also a long, successful professional rela- tionship, has remarried. "Although I am married to a wonderful woman now," he says, "I still feel the pain of Jessie's death and how difficult it was for me to accept that was she really gone, and to make changes in my life that, while realistic, were also painful. "Jessie and I used to say how fortunate we were to be growing old together. But when she died, I felt we hadn't been old together long enough." Cronyn says he finally came to terms with the fact that he would have to make changes in his life, such as moving from the New York apartment he and Tandy had shared for years, into a home in Connecticut,"with a real kitchen in which my wife can do some real cookin Cactus ,.
