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.

A surprisingly fun film
9 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've listened to a few of the Judy Canova radio shows and have always found her entertaining. The hayseed school of humor has long been out of fashion but even though it's heyday was before my time, I enjoy it – at least the sort Canova portrayed. In this movie Canova (playing Sis) goes to live with her wealthy Uncle Horace Hopkins - Charles Butterworth- who is a down-home kind of fellow who made his fortune in the plumbing business. Uncle Horace has retained his modest country ways (but not his accent) but his wife and daughter Carol (Susan Hayward) are snooty social climbers who, of course, are appalled by Canova's simple country ways and language. Uncle Horace sends Sis to college where she ends up as Carol's roommate much to Carol's chagrin. Jerry Colonna plays the college's music professor and actually has a few very amusing scenes. In spite of Carol's machinations, Sis wins over the students with her sincere trusting manner and her genuine vocal talent. Canova's voice range was a big surprise to me – she could sing more than just hee-haw tunes. Unlike a previous reviewer, I thought the production values were excellent. In fact, during the big musical production number at the end of the movie I remember thinking that this was really amazing – especially for a Republic picture. At 91 minutes the movie was, for me, about 10 minutes too long. Even so, it was an entertaining, fun watch.
