Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Jimmy Stewart plays Lawrence Smith in this Capraesque tale in which an ambitious pollster finds a small town whose citizens' opinions accurately reflect those of America at large. On discovering this oddity in the darling town of Grandview, Smith plots to exploit this "mathematical miracle." Posing as an insurance salesman along with his two sidekicks, Ike Sloan (Ned Sparks) and Mr. Twiddle (Donald Meek), he romances the local newspaper editor while trying to keep her from discovering his true intentions. The young editor, Mary Peterman (Jane Wyman), has hopes for improving the town with a new civics center. Mary soon proves to be smarter than "Rip" ever anticipated. When she exposes the truth, the resulting publicity threatens to destroy the town and everything it stood for. Screenwriter Robert Riskin made his independent producing debut with this film directed by the great William Wellman.
The owner of an opinion poll organization finds that the views held by the residents of a small American community exactly duplicate those of the nation at large. His efforts to use the town for opinion research are stymied by an energetic and progressive woman who runs the local newspaper.
