Like all the old negative stereotypes about the American south rolled into one dreadful film.
26 June 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Imagine a film that is like "Hee-Haw", "The Beverly Hillbillies", "Li'l Abner" and you put them together....along with yodeling!! Talk about a recipe for a migraine!! Despite being a public domain film that is free to download, watching this film is no bargain!!

The film begins with some pig (the animal, I mean) having a litter of 18 piglets. Well, the nation goes nuts about this--after all, being 1944 there isn't much in the news anyway...except maybe WWII!!! In a contrived plot, a leader of a female band takes his troupe to Arkansas to cash in on the hype about the pigs. But in this one-horse town, the only fun is another band that just happens to be passing through as well! But the all-male band pretends to just be locals. Why? Because it's in the script. And when the two bands get together it's yodeling, Roy Rogers style music, ventriloquism(!) and lots of corn-ball humor. Nowdon't get me wrong--I am not against the South or Mountain folk--just terrifically one-dimensional and silly portrayals of them. And it doesn't get much more silly and one-dimensional than this, as the film manages to be at least as bad as the infamous "Swing Your Lady"--a film that made it to the "Fifty Worst Movies" book! Not good and I film I won't recommend unless you are the type who thinks Larry the Cableguy is too sophisticated!
