Pleasant Dish of Cornpone
2 August 2002 | by (Arlington, VA) – See all my reviews

High society gal Crawford falls for aw-shucks ranch-hand Brown in a somewhat predictable, but well-played, romance-cum-morality play. Crawford even sings a Broadway-flavored trail ballad, and while she is certainly no Jeanette Macdonald (one was enough!), she does a creditable job with the material she has to work with. She and Brown both play their roles to their respective hilts, and provide intriguing insights into America's pre-Code morals as depicted by Hollywood. Not to be missed: excellent comedy cameos by Cliff Edwards (later famed as the voice of Jiminy Cricket in Disney's animated classic "Pinocchio") and Benny Rubin (a teasingly fey Yiddish fella). Well worth a look-see!
