Storyline

When Pete's plane crashes in the swamp, he's rescued by young Tammy, an unsophisticated backwoods girl who lives with her lay-preacher-cum-moonshiner grandfather. When Pete's well, he goes back home to his fiancée. But then Grampa gets sent to jail and he sends Tammy to stay with Pete. At Pete's house, Tammy's home cooking, enthusiasm and quaint sunshiny personality bring about changes in Pete's family and in Pete himself. Written by Kathy Li

"Cute" movie for the time it was released. Has special meaning for me.
26 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being in my early 60's, I saw 'Tammy and the Bachelor' when I was a teenager. It was a wonderful movie to me then: the poor girl who gets the handsome, affluent beau. I still like the movie for its simple message: one should be judged by his/her character, not by social status. "Tammy" was the first song that I ever sang in a talent contest (and I won first place), so I have a reason to remember the title song with much interest. A friend of my older brother came from New York to North Carolina for a visit back then and had me to sing "Tammy" over and over. Back then, I felt as if I WERE Tammy. Such movies don't wear as well with time as the classics, but they're nice to remember and to watch again.
