She calls herself "The Bride of the Cattle King", while he condescendingly calls her 'Buckshot'...
8 June 2010 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Lou Breslow and Doris Anderson adapted Kay Swift's semi-autobiographical book (the uncredited "Who Could Ask For Anything More") about a female songstress from New York City who has a whirlwind courtship and marriage to a widower cowboy named Chris. She makes all the sacrifices and learns to love life down on his dilapidated ranch, while the cowboy's two young daughters test their new step-mother out and the cowboy-husband spends his time mending fences and hunting cougars. By-the-numbers comedy-romance admittedly doesn't score points against Irene Dunne's smart cookie of a wife (she has a few entanglements, which are neatly ironed out). Still, the screen-union of Dunne with the somewhat-malevolent Fred MacMurray never convinces--and when he speaks to her, it's always as if he had just inherited another daughter. Kay Swift wrote the simple, singalong tunes, Gigi Perreau and Natalie Wood are adorable as the youngsters, though the script never resolves the heroine's out-of-her-element predicament. Thus, the rosy ending doesn't quite wash. ** from ****
