"The Andy Griffith Show" Ellie Saves a Female (TV Episode 1961) - Plot Summary Poster

Plot Summary

  • When a farmer's daughter won't buy cosmetics for herself because her father wouldn't approve, Ellie decides to give the girl a few of the items, contrary to Andy's warning about meddling. Andy and Ellie go to Flint's place to deliver the items, but he refuses to let Frankie keep them and offers no explanation. Barney talks to Flint, to no avail, then takes Frankie into custody and delivers her to Ellie at home. When Frances returns, her father doesn't even recognize her at first, and, although he thinks she's "right pretty", he still needs her to help work the farm because he has no sons like Jenkins, his neighbor, whose sons are working just beyond the fence. There's disappointment all around until Andy tries an experiment to show Flint what the most efficient use of his one asset, his daughter, might be.

It's obvious that she would love to have some make-up and things but can't afford them so Ellie decides to give her some. She talks Andy into taking her up to the Flint farm but Frankie's father will have nothing to do with her and orders them off his land. Barney tries to convince the man but when he too fails he takes Frankie into town anyways. With Frankie's make-over complete, they return to the farm but Andy still has to find a solution to the farmer's objections.
