This movie is one that I have watched (over the last forty years) with my mom and then later my daughter many times. It is one of our favorites. In it you will discover that Robert Taylor (best known for his beautiful face and romantic roles) has a flair for comedy and makes good use of a wonderful supporting cast.
Victor McLaughlin is himself (but that's just fine by me), James Arness plays straight man and a young Alan Hale Jr. (before Gilligan's Island) combine with the perennially juvenile antics of Russ Tamblin to provide and hour and a half plus of escapist entertainment and downright good old fashioned laughter.
The beautiful Eleanor Parker plays a tomboy like no other we've seen but that's okay, too. This one's for fun and for the trivia purists, too. There are many connections to television shows that some of the cast will appear in years later. See how many you can find. Hint...check out the director, etc.
The higher up the berry tree, the sweeter grow the berries, the more you hug and kiss a girl, the more they want to marry!
