Some anomalies in Noah Deerborn


We enjoyed this film and we really love Sidney Poitier, but we have a few questions. Why were none of the cattle on Noah's farm FEMALES? Why would he keep four or five bulls or steers?

Why was the central barn so dilapidated when he was such a brilliant carpenter and all his wood interiors were immaculate?

Also, the neighbour with all the children whom Noah regularly stops by to help had a "baby" she was carrying in a bunting bag but the infant looked disturbingly like a doll.

Some of it was the simple life, all right.

Still, just to watch Sidney Poitier makes these points moot and the other actors acquitted themself well or at least pleasantly.

I liked the movie very much and I do appreciate your observations. Noah's barn would have been beautiful.

just saw the movie for the 1st time yesterday, and I think noah's barn was kinda like him,,, On the outside it hadn't change much over the yrs, but the few ppl he let in got the opprotunity to see the inner beauty of it and him

"Why was the central barn so dilapidated when he was such a brilliant carpenter and all his wood interiors were immaculate?"

Because it's what's inside that counts.

The barn wasn't dilapidated. The wood was grey with age but the structure was completely intact.

She has several children! The doll likely is played with by one or more of them. She was holding it, not cradling it. Watch "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"; Ronnie picks up and carries the children's toys, perhaps trying to clean up. It's something parents with children do. Who knows? Maybe the baby doll needed repairing.
