You will get a few laughs out of this comedy. Corn and Turnups once a mainstay of diets is the theme of this movie. Corny scenes turnup crunchingly so, but the ole Evangelist gal had a voice that would drive the crows away by droves. The choir was magnificent, if you have ruff ears like the silk of a corn cob. The ever seductive farmers’ daughter Ela Mae was a site for soar eye’s. If your eye’s aren’t soar from the start they soon will be. Later when Pa tells her to take a bath your eyes do straighten up a bit.
If ya have a tolerance for plume dumb stuff go ahead and watch; if not and ya wanna watch anyway get down on your knees and pray for the keys of heaven to show up, for your gonna need’m afore this moving movie engulfs you into a new old of corn and turnups, mode of life. Oh the movie ant half bad if your 50 – 60 or so you can endure it. If you make it half way through the flick it will move your heart and make ya wonder about life and a brand new start.
It is not a religious flick but ya might get the idea that it is right quick. Religion ain’t much count anyway, for it is full of rituals laws and so have you. But God who is real is for freedom to do as you see fit either by his view or bygone the other direction for eternity. So all in all if you can stand it sit down and enjoy this crazy little ride with Ward Bond, Ellie May (Gene Tierney) and the others.
