Country bumpkin Aaron Slick has been unsuccessfully courting pretty young widow Josie Berry for years. Josie yearns for a fling in the big city. With $20,000 from a crooked deal stashed in their trunk, Bill Merridew and his "kissing cousin" Gladys, stars, in a relative sense, of a touring tent show stop at Josie's farm. Merridew, actually hiding out, thinks there is oil on the farm and Aaron, knowing otherwise, tricks him into buying the farm for a large sum. Josie takes the money and runs to Chicago, with Merridew, realizing he was tricked, in hot pursuit. Aaron arrives in time to keep Josie from letting Merridew "invest" her money. Written by

May not be one of the greats...but I would have thought it well-known enough that some over-45 IMDb contributor would have compiled a review by now.
Alan Young makes a pleasant enough Aaron Slick, a likeable hayseed you would expect to see in GREEN ACRES. After Josie (a young Dinah Shore) is tricked into selling her farm she gets herself mixed up with the Mob until homespun Crick comes to her rescue. Very much a product of 50's American provincial theater.
Few laughs, a few songs..nothing much to remember five minutes after its finished. Hasn't stood the test of time either and is dated as all hell now.
