When Lyndon Baines Johnson launched his War On Poverty in the 1960s, he sought to stamp out the vibrant & vital culture depicted in this 1975 rural-romantic masterwork, PIGKEEPER'S DAUGHTER.
The Swiners were born to be pigkeepers, and their blooming daughter Moonbeam was born to be a piglovin' princess. Alone with her cracker thoughts, voluptuous Moonbeam fantasizes about her Prince Charming, substituting her prize porker, Lord Hamilton, for the old fairy tale's feckless frog. Lord Hamilton, in his turn, fairly wallows in his role as a kept creature, true blue to Moonbeam through every twist and turn of this cinematic hayride. Meanwhile, Mrs. Swiner gets pitched by a traveling salesman, and Little Patty, the girl next door, learns the hard facts of life from hillbilly stud Jasper. Get the picture?
I found this DVD in the "Learning" category at Borders Books, Music & Video. May you be so lucky.
