Swedish-American farmer's daughter Katrin 'Katie' Holstrom leaves the farm to study nursing in the big, wicked city. Thanks to a chiseling acquaintance, her tuition and expense money disappears the first day, and she's forced to get a job...as a domestic for congressman Glenn Morley. Impressed by her political awareness as well as her many charms and capabilities, Glenn is soon infatuated with Katie, and she with him, but their feelings remain unspoken...until Katie speaks up at a party rally and is abruptly thrust into politics herself.

In The Farmer's Daughter
, Katrin Holstrom (Loretta Young
) reads the story of the townsfolk who place their beloved doctor's office shingle as a monument on his tomb: "Dr. Sorensen: Upstairs". Essentially the same scene occurs in Dreaming Out Loud
where Lum and Abner place the "Dr. Walter Barnes: Office Upstairs" shingle on the good doctor's tomb. See more

These days they yell for anything.

[Stands up and yells
Fish for sale!
