Storyline

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.

A Delightful Comedy with a Great Cast
5 November 1999 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

Loretta Young won an Oscar for her portrayal of a Swedish farm girl turned congresswoman in this excellent comedy. Joseph Cotten is fine as her co-star. Charles Bickford and Ethel Barrymore provide strong support. Don't miss this one!
