4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, light, 50s-ish postwar comedy-drama Sept. 22 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Belabored, yet charming story of Loretta Young as a small-town girl who makes it big -- real big -- in Capitol City, by sticking to her simple honest values, and by nabbing Joseph Cotten, a state congressman who holds a torch for her. Very wholesome and very Fifties-ish, with some nice humorous touches (and a weird intimation of a postwar American fascist Fifth Column...) Charles Bickford is great as Cotton's sidekick/butler, who acts as the conscience of the household, and zips off a few choice zingers...

By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is as heartwarming as others, "It's A Wonderful Life" comes to mind, that have become classics, but it doesn't seem to get the same amount of respect. Loretta Young won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as Katie Holstrom, and she deserved it very much. Charles Bickford, as the butler Clancy, was also nominated that year in the Best Supporting Actor category. He was just great as well.
The story is about a young woman's journey to town from her father's farm to become a nurse. Once in town, she gets sidetracked by romance and politics. There are some wonderful moments throughout that will make you laugh and may even bring a tear to your eye. I can't recommend this film enough. It's just great.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great film! Feb. 10 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Loretta Young and Jospeh Cotton make a great couple in this film. It has everything comedy, romance, and great scenery. Ethel Barrymore, is equally delightful in it. It's a film, well worth seeing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Politics With A Swedish Flavour Feb. 26 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Loretta Young stars as a young Swedish farm girl who goes into the big city and ends up as a maid for an important political family (Joseph Cotten and Ethel Barrymore). She has opinions herself, and wouldn't you know it, she winds up running for Congress herself. This is one of Young's most famous films, and the movie contains some of my favourite actors from the Forties (Cotten, Barrymore, and Charles Bickford as the family's butler). This is an easy, warm comedy that benefits from the expert performances of the entire cast.
