I have to say, Joel McCrea's character is really unlikeable, but then again every movie has one unlikeable character! Other than that, this has to be one of the best movies ever. Barbara Stanwyk turns in yet another outstanding performance. Only an actress as talented as she is could turn in such believable performances in roles ranging from strippers, to farm girls, to prisoners to, as in this movie, uneducated poor girls. And in this movie you get the rare treat of hearing her sing! I'm surprised she didn't sing in more of her movies. Equally great performances can be found in Walter Brennan and Buddy Ebsen. Walter Brennan never did a bad job in his life, and I'd say this is one of his best. The only other annoying thing besides Joel McCrea's character's unlike-ability is Walter Catlett, though, I have to say, I don't really like him in any movies. So if you like him in Bringing Up Baby or , you'll like him in this movie as well. (But if you don't like him in other movies, you won't like him in this either.) The story is sweet, the characters are sweeter, and this is one gem of a movie you won't want to miss. I caught it on the fox movie channel the other day, luckily, because it sells for almost forty dollars on amazon! But you know what, I think it is definitely worth it!
