Storyline

A young girl from the "sticks" comes to the city to live with her wealthy relatives. At first she is the objection of derision and made fun of because of her unsophisticated nature, but it turns out that there's a bit more to her than most of her snooty relatives and their condescending friends think.

Country Cousin
18 February 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In Sis Hopkins Judy Canova plays the proverbial country cousin who comes to live with her rich relations in the big city. Her blood uncle Charles Butterworth is all right, he's the twin brother of her father and Uncle Butterworth became rich by inventing a new kind of faucet valve. He was a plumber when he started and not one to put on airs. The same can't be said for his wife Katharine Alexander and daughter Susan Hayward. They've taken to the manor born and they've even got a snooty butler played by Charles Coleman.

The missus won't have Canova around, so Butterworth sends her off to college with Hayward. Of course Susan isn't crazy about the prospect of rooming in the dormitory with her country cousin, especially when the rich society kid Bob Crosby starts checking her out.

Sis Hopkins is the quintessential Judy Canova film where Judy may come off like a hayseed, but she's got good instincts and a good heart that people eventually warm up to. Even her rich relatives eventually come around.

I can't leave Sis Hopkins without mentioning Jerry Colonna who plays a wacky music professor who house mother Elvira Allman has a bit of a thing going for. Allman plays Margaret Dumont to Colonna's Groucho Marx and the results are pretty funny.

Sis Hopkins has a nice cast of colorful supporting players who nicely frame Judy Canova in her quintessential part. One of those is Susan Hayward as her snooty cousin. Hayward is fifth billed in Sis Hopkins and probably no one but Susan Hayward saw Oscar in her future. It took 17 years to get there, but Susan Hayward knew her worth and had that kind of determination.

Sis Hopkins was produced by Republic and the production values aren't the greatest. Still the cast puts this one over very well.
