The sleepy town of Pitchfork, Arkansas becomes famous when hillbilly Slim Summerville (as Juniper "Pa" Jenkins) celebrates his prolific pig's latest litter. Not only does she have a personality (which we never really see), "Esmeralda" is blessed with eighteen piglets. As many Arkansas residents don't know many numbers more 'an ten, Mr. Summerville calls it "a heap a' pigs all in one lump." This stupid story is partially redeemed by the presence of some legendary country names in the extended cast, moat notably sunshine girl Mary Ford and musician Merle Travis. Best of all are the songs by country and western recording star Jimmy Wakely. Also featured are vocal group The Pied Pipers, yodeling blonde Carolina Cotton, and The Milo Twins. The soundtrack is far superior to the story.
