What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is an old-fashioned musical film that reflects the simple innocence of the 1940s Midwestern farm community. There are a few scenes of drunkenness played for comic effect. A leading character loses his temper and socks another man in the jaw. In one short roller coaster scene the heroine is very frightened. A number of passionate "movie" kisses indicates that the characters are falling in love.
