There's nothing wrong about a small town and those living the small-town lifestyle. That's what city boy Farley Granger finds out, when he's stopped for going 85 in a 25 mile zone. When the sheriff's daughter, played by Jane Powell and who is the "Small Town Girl," sees him, she instantly takes a liking to him. Who wouldn't? But she doesn't admit it. When her father gives him 30 days in the clinker to prove a point, Farley becomes adamant that he isn't staying the full term, because it's ludicrous to stay that long. He even goes so far to withstand the food given him, at least the food made by deputy Chill Wills. (Other small town girls sneak in hamburgers through the window.) Farley was incidentally going to be married to Ann Miller, but with his incarceration, it's obviously postponed. But will it be altogether dropped? This lightweight musical comedy may not be that important, but I have not been so entertained and left feeling so good in a long time. Its energy and upbeat musical numbers are infectious, especially Ann Miller's two dance numbers and Bobby Van's hopping number. And, Jane Powell has never looked lovelier. Costarring S.Z. Sakall, Billie Burke, Fay Wray, and Robert Keith as Jane's father and the voice of reason, who wants to eat his dinner in peace, this is one small town story that's sure to please even the crankiest of city people.
