Trivia

It's interesting to see a wedding ring on Wallace Beery's left ring finger. He was divorced from his second wife in 1939. And his character in this film is not married. See more »

Goofs

Bascomb said that he didn't want anything to do with marriage. But in one scene with Margaret O'Brien one can see Beery's wedding ring. See more »

Quotes

Emmy: you don't care for all women, do you, Zeke?
Zeb Bascomb: No, only one. I don't know why I should because she's just as homely as an old mud fence.
Emmy: Am I?
Zeb Bascomb: I was only foolin'.
Emmy: No, it's no joke to be homely.
Zeb Bascomb: You're beautiful. You got the cutest little pug nose.
Emmy: Grandma says that's where the sun kissed me. Didn't the sun ever kiss you?
Zeb Bascomb: What, this homely mug of mine? No.
Emmy: Oh, you're not homely, Zeke. You're P-R-I-T-Y.
Zeb Bascomb: You. You still got river water in your eyes.

With Beery, O'Brien and Maine, who needs a plot?
13 December 2001 | by Silents FanSee all my reviews

Sure, this is just another horse opera, but who cares?

Wallace Beery is more entertaining just being Wallace Beery than most actors are with sparkling dialogue and auteur direction.

Magararet O'Brien: Shirley Temple she ain't! When people talk about child stars, they usually mention Jackie Coogan and Jackie Cooper; Mickey Rooney and Dickie Moore; Baby Peggy and Hailie Mills. Give me Margaret O'Brien any day.

Marjorie Main could lick her weight in Marie Dresslers, any day.

Pure entertainment!
