Swedish-American farmer's daughter Katrin 'Katie' Holstrom leaves the farm to study nursing in the big, wicked city. Thanks to a chiseling acquaintance, her tuition and expense money disappears the first day, and she's forced to get a job...as a domestic for congressman Glenn Morley. Impressed by her political awareness as well as her many charms and capabilities, Glenn is soon infatuated with Katie, and she with him, but their feelings remain unspoken...until Katie speaks up at a party rally and is abruptly thrust into politics herself.

Initially titling their film "Katie for Congress", RKO sought the more suggestive title "The Farmer's Daughter". However, they had to buy that title from Paramount Pictures, who owned The Farmer's Daughter (1940). See more

Tell us what kind of a representative you'd like.
Someone who'd represent. No, no, I mean represent all of us. To me, once a person is elected to office, he has a great duty to all the people. He shouldn't just represent the men who, who gave money to his advertisements and campaign, and he shouldn't be in office just to serve just the politicians. He should serve the people. He should know what the people want, and vote for what they want.
