Yes, folks - Barbara Stanwyck sings (two songs including a duet with Tony Martin) and dances with Buddy Ebsen. And she ain't bad. She and Walter Brennan are the whole film. This is an odd look at river folks and land folks along the Mississippi. Plot is nothing to write home about but it is charming - due to the characters. Brennan as an expectant father-in-law who is also a one man band steals the film away from Stanwyck with his usual great character portrayals (he won the first Supporting Actor trophy that year for his work in COME AND GET IT - helped no doubt by his performance here). Songs are fun and well done. The sound earned an Oscar nom and well deserved. Don't go out of your way for this one but if you're a Stanwyck or Brennan fan, it's a must see.
