Storyline

Covering the tulip festival in Little Delft, Michigan, reporter Henry Taggart takes a room at an inn ran by an eccentric old Dutchman, Mr. Van Maaster and his seven daughters. The eldest, Regina, is spoiled and stage-struck while Billie, Victor, Albert, Cornelius, Peter and George work there as boys. Henry, momentarily attracted to Regina, realizes he is in love with Billie when he hears her sing. Billie, resists his attentions, believing him the property of Regina since it is a Van Maaster family tradition that no girls in the family can marry until the eldest has. Billie admits her love for Henry but Regina will not relent. The old man trails Regine to New York where she says she has eloped, and asks that Billie marry Henry. Six couples in wedding clothes stand at the altar in the Little Delft church; Billie and Henry and the five other sisters with their intended. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

This story was set in Delft, Michigan and oddly enough resembles the tulip time in Holland, Michigan, unlike what was previously written, there are a lot of dutch families in Holland; There is few Spanish families there. This movie is cute, it doesn't lack any informality of its time, it delights in the old ways of the dutch. The characters are genuine and the set is typical of its era, it has the quality of film noir. A delightful classic that should be appreciated. It is Not desensitized by propaganda films or shoved into a shelf with out consideration for shadow, camera angles, and well played out script.
