The Farmer's Daughter turns out to be excellent entertainment because Producer Dore Schary and his associates evidently know a good deal about the special kinds of people they are telling about.
Young won the Best Actress Oscar for her charming if hardly award-worthy turn (her win is still considered one of the biggest upsets in Oscar history).
It is a hopeful romantic melodrama which hits all the right notes of an optimistic post-WWII America obsessed with its own virtuousness.
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.
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..
