Quick Overview

Starring Martha Raye, Charles Ruggles, Richard Denning, Gertrude Michael, William Frawley

Directed by James P. Hogan



Print: black/white

Runtime: 60 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



Imagine the dismay of those hapless TV station managers who've booked the 1940 Martha

Raye vehicle The Farmer's Daughter in the belief that they've actually gotten hold of the

same-named 1947 Loretta Young picture. Hardly in the same league as its namesake, the

1940 film casts Raye as Patience Bingham, a starstruck rural gal who hopes to land a part

in a musical show being staged in a reconverted barn. The show is being financed by

millionaire Nicksie North (Charlie Ruggles) as a vehicle for his untalented girl friend Clarice

Sheldon (Gertrude Michael). That's right, folks: Clarice walks off the show on opening night,

forcing her understudy-who else but Patience?—to appear in her stead. As a bonus,

Patience lands leading man Dennis Crane (Richard Denning) as a husband, to the surprise

of no one but Dennis.
