Storyline

The setting is a farm. Kate Smith and Sally Blane play sisters; assorted relatives live with the sisters, but everyone at home, and in the whole town, depends on Kate to hold everything together. The power company wants to build a dam which will require flooding many of the farms; Kate is holding out; if Kate sells, everyone else will sell; if Kate refuses, the rest of the town will refuse as well. Randolph Scott meets Kate's beautiful sister, Sally Blane, at a dance. Randolph Scott, as it turns out, is an agent for the power company. Kate thinks he's just using Sally; Sally believes that he truly likes her. Randolph comes to the farm and appears to woo Kate. Kate remains unconvinced about selling out, but falls for Randolph.

Some lovely singing...but the rest is not so lovely
28 May 2016 | by jjnxn-1See all my reviews

On the basis on this, her only starring vehicle, it's easy to see why Kate Smith never made it as a film star and also why she was a tremendous star on radio. On film she makes minimal impact, seeming cheery but not being able to convey much other emotion. It doesn't help that the story surrounding her is hopelessly corny. However when she sings her warm beautifully inflected voice projects all the nuance that is missing in her acting performance.

One note: the inclusion of the song Pickaninny's Heaven is unfortunate but such were the times. It's a brief blip so easy to skip over.

An oddity but worth watching once for its curiosity value, and when Kate does sing the picture becomes much easier to take.
