Peter Wolfe's 1988 music video "Come As You Are" is an homage to Bobby Van's street dance in this movie. Wolfe re-create's Van's dance quite faithfully, and early in the music video Wolfe passes a poster for "Small Town Girl". See more »
Worth watching, for Nat "King" Cole, if nothing else
Small Town Girl is cute, fluffy and moderately entertaining. It tells the story of a handsome rich young man (Farley Granger) and the titular daughter of the small town judge who sentences him to 30 days in jail for speeding. Antics ensue.
There is much singing and dancing and Bobby Van has a long scene where he hops through town -- even with two or three cuts, it's still a whole lot of hopping!
What made me sit up and take notice, though, was Nat "King" Cole's number, set in a New York nightclub. It makes the film definitely worth watching, even worth buying.
