A young girl from the "sticks" comes to the city to live with her wealthy relatives.

Did I mention the yodeling?
11 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very much a mixed bag. The good-Judy Canova could really sing when she wasn't camping it up with yodeling and so forth. Bob Crosby, Bing's brother, also had a nice voice not as smooth as his brothers but pleasant and his band is very good but when he reads his lines the man is a block of wood. Susan Hayward very early in her career gives a good account of herself as a spoiled selfish witch, something of a specialty of hers on her way up. Plus she has the dubious distinction of probably being the only Oscar winner to appear in a Judy Canova movie. The bad-Did I mention the yodeling? Jerry Colonna is very definitely an acquired taste and a great deal of the movie is very corny and a tad ridiculous. Not painful just don't expect high art.
