Storyline

A young girl from the "sticks" comes to the city to live with her wealthy relatives. At first she is the objection of derision and made fun of because of her unsophisticated nature, but it turns out that there's a bit more to her than most of her snooty relatives and their condescending friends think.

Not Canova's Best, but Decent Time-Passer
13 March 2016 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

A hick from the sticks, Sis Hopkins, is thrust into a sophisticated urban setting, where a lot of folks object to her down-home ways, especially when she's slated to join a fancy college sorority.

The name Judy Canova may not be familiar to non-fans of old movies and radio. Perhaps the best way to describe her appeal is as a country cousin of TV's Gomer Pyle. She had an inimitable style doing either novelty songs or knock-about dances. But beneath her rather homely appearance, an appealing persona shone through. Unfortunately, this is not her best showcase, maybe because screen time is shared by a number of performers, including mustachioed comic Jerry Colonna taking a break from radio, and an unexpected Susan Hayward already showing a sharp edge behind that soft beauty. Unfortunately, the musical selections are pretty forgettable, rather surprising given Bob Crosby's popular presence. And what's with that hugely overdone final production number. Its lordly costuming appears jarringly out of place. But at least there's a lot of sexy girls backstage for guys to look at. Then too, I suspect the patriotic curtain closer was anticipating WWII then only months away. All in all, the 100-minutes may not be top-notch Canova, but does remain a decent time- passer.
