Movie Info

Set in 1888 during a Presidential election, this family-oriented Disney musical chronicles the struggle of a Dakota farmer and his musically talented family to wrangle an invite to that year's Democratic convention in cosmopolitan St. Louis. Look closely for Goldie Hawn in her first film role as a laughing chorine.

Critic Reviews for The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band
