Critic Reviews for The Farmer's Daughter
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).
Charming film of a type completely absent these days.
Audience Reviews for The Farmer's Daughter
Loretta Young won her Academy Award in this well made, nuanced (originally Finnish) scenario of a plain spoken country gal who delivers common hardworking sense to the conceited, know-everything swells in the big city (sorta like a female version of Mr. Deeds Goes To Town). The frosting is thick on this cake but its still pretty good and its ladled out by a entire cast of totally recognisable character regulars. Like many old school visits to the dreamtime along with the realisation that this dreamworld never existed is the somewhat charming wish "that wouldn't it great if it did though?"
Cute if slightly silly movie that would likely be critically panned today. Despite the loss of innocence in the post war period, this still depicts a world that displayed innocence in film..
its like mr. smith goes to Washington meets Pamela (a novel by Samuel Richardson)...overall it is a fairly decent movie especially if you like old movies..
