No consensus yet.
Abner is a stupid hillbilly, but girls like him because he's cute. I suppose they have to take what they can get, but you don't have to take this movie, it's not worth watching.
the tradition of using hokum humor to make valid social points goes back a long way and al capp's "li'l abner" was a formidable addition, especially for a newspaper comic strip, to that interesting form. unfortunately li'l of capp's sarcasm and wit makes it to this movie version (that never happens in the movies!). tho granville owen is a dead ringer for al capp's creation (and i don't know if that's a good or bad thing), the throwaway hollywood treatment is more like a valentine than real love. buster keaton's here too.
It's good if you like the comic strip.
Granville Owen is good as Li'l Abner. Al Capp's comic strip was political, and this movie shys away from anything political, so it doesn't really get Al Capp's point. Buster Keaton is funny in his few scenes as Lonesome Polecat.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
