I want you and you want hillbillies
13 December 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Good-looking melodrama about a backwoods girl (Josephine Hutchinson) who dreams of opening medical clinics for hillbillies, but most contend with abusive father (Robert Barrat). Outrageous at times with some ridiculous caricatures in place of real characters. But still it's entertaining and moves along nicely, helped by an able cast. George Brent plays the Northern lawyer in love with Hutchinson. I believe he was the only character who actually said the word hillbilly in the film. But he said it often and with such disdain each time I couldn't help but chuckle. Guy Kibbee and Margaret Hamilton are the lovable old couple that help show the audience the hill people aren't all as evil as Barrat.
