Rating: 4/5 -- Charming film of a type completely absent these days.

The Farmer's Daughter turns out to be excellent entertainment because Producer Dore Schary and his associates evidently know a good deal about the special kinds of people they are telling about. Full Review

Rating: B -- Loretta Young won the Oscar for Potter's cheerful but naive upward mobility fable about an ambitious farm girl(of Swedish descent) who becomes a congresswoman and wins the man (Joseph Cotten). Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Young won the Best Actress Oscar for her charming if hardly award-worthy turn (her win is still considered one of the biggest upsets in Oscar history). Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- It is a hopeful romantic melodrama which hits all the right notes of an optimistic post-WWII America obsessed with its own virtuousness. Full Review

Product Description:

Suggested from the Finnish play by Juhni Tervataa, this light romantic comedy is full of delights. Loretta Young portrays a lovely Swedish country girl named Katrin, complete with accent and peasant blouse, who comes to the big city and lands a gig working in Glenn Morley's (Joeseph Cotton) mansion as a second maid. Ethel Barrymore plays his iron-fisted mother, Mrs. Morley, who also lives there. The charismatic son and tough mother are the money behind a well-oiled political machine that is in the process of electing a congressman. The congressman is in the fight of his life. Katrin, naïve and frank, stirs up the house when she comes on the scene and openly voices her disapproval of their candidate by heckling him at a rally. Director H.C.Potter gets in a few deep political jabs, but for the most part the politics serve the comedy and the love story. Loretta Young brought home a much-deserved Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance.
