Description by OLDIES.com:
Debbie Reynolds plays the title role, inviting all to "Belly Up to the Bar, Boys" for the whoop-and-holler film of Willson's 1960 Broadway hit. Reynolds received a 1964 Best Actress Oscar nomination as the backwoods heroine who survives the Titanic and the snobbery of Denver society. Screen-debuting Harve Presnell reprises his stage role of Johnny, who has heartful-and-a-half of love for Molly.
