Country fun
17 July 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is really just some good old country fun, pretty well done. Hound dog refers to a real dog that they took out hunting, and a young fellow wanted to do that when he grew up. You have romantic tangles with Carol Lynley and young Dodie Stevens, who had a hit with Pink Shoelaces at the time. Pleny of singin and dancin, including a rollicking enjoyable barn dance scene. Fabian sings and so does Dodie. The title song was made into a good rock and roll hit, written by the famous Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman. Not all the songs are great and I have no idea why This Friendly World got any attention. The picture was wide Cinemascope, but full-screen on TV.
