Did You Know?

This is generally considered to be the "screen debut" of Marilyn Monroe, although most of her footage was cut. She is visible just for a fleeting second or less as she descends the church steps and says, "Hi Rad," to June Haver's character as everyone is coming out of church on Sunday morning.See more »

Bucolic?, 28 October 2006
Author: artzau from Sacramento, CA

One reviewer referred to this old film as "bucolic," a term we rarely encounter these days. I have to agree that the setting is rural and somewhat tame about a young man, Lon McCalliser, who prefers mules over Natalie Wood. Well, she was only 10 years old at the time and June Haver was the primary female interest as I recall. Crusty old crackly voiced Walter Brennan was the old mentor in the film and the story really doesn't stir a great deal of memories, except it was about muleskinners and back in those days (I was 11 at the time), that was enough romance for me.

Not a a bad old film, if you come across it on the late show. But, definitely bucolic.
