I have always loved old movies and most are the kind you can watch over again and again this is one of them! The last time I watched it I caught something new and thought was so cute Emmy (Maragret o'Brien)is dressing in a pretty dress to surprise Zed Bascomb (Wallace Beery)and her grandmother gives her two handkerchiefs and she tells her "Here is one for show and one for blow." I believe actors from this era were true artisan of their craft, something I find lacking in actors today.
For More Fun between Beery and Main I recommend Jackass Mail 1942 & Wyoming 1940. For You Margaret O'Brien fans one movie you must see is Our Vines Have Tender Grapes.
