The Reviews for The Farmer's Daughter (1947) 1080p


Poignant storyReviewed byjotix100Vote: 8/10

Not having seen the movie before, it was a complete surprise to watch it on cable the other night. This film shows that little, if nothing, ever changes in the world of politics. In fact, it could well be compared to this year's presidential contest. The only thing that has changed from the time where this film was done is that in order to win an election in this country, the candidate must be independently wealthy, or have benefactors that are willing to put up the money in exchange of favors down the line, or not be able to run at all.

H. C. Potter's film shows us a slice of what on the surface was an ideal time in America during the 40s, but deep down, this film speaks a lot of what was wrong then, in a subtle way.

Young Katrin Holstrom arrives in Capital City wanting to be a nurse. She has to change plans because when she arrives in the city, she has no money because an unscrupulous man had swindled her out of it. She begins working as a maid at the Morley's mansion. They are the local big name in politics. Mrs. Morley makes candidates, or destroys them. Her own son, Glenn is a Congressman.

All this atmosphere contributes to the growth of Katrin, or Katie, as she is called. She takes an interest in politics and she shows that she can speak and ask the right questions the candidates don't want to answer. The movie shows the dirty side of campaigns, in general, as is the case of with what's happening in 2004 in America.

Loretta Young was perfect as Katrin Halstrom. In this film she out charms everyone that she comes in contact with. Joseph Cotten is as effective as she always was in whatever he appeared in. Ethel Barrymore is Agatha, the rich woman behind the political machine. Charles Bickford is also excellent as Joseph, the butler.

Most movies from that period are sadly dated, but this one keeps the ideals of democracy in check. Bravo to Dory Schary for bringing this movie to the screen.

Opportunity Knocks for Loretta YoungReviewed bywes-connorsVote: 8/10

Loretta Young plays a Swedish "Cinderella" who rises from poor Minnesota farm girl to potential Washington official. This is very much a "Star Vehicle" for Ms. Young, and she is remarkable - lifting the routine rags-to-riches story far above the expected. Some of the supporting players seem a little silly - maybe playing caricatures - but, Ethel Barrymore and Charles Bickford are recommended viewing; and, Young is admirably assisted by Joseph Cotton as "leading man".

There were some surprises in the predictably - at one time, the film looks like it's going to end poorly, but turns around nicely. The production values are relatively high, so ignore the fake snow scene. Surprisingly, the behind-the-scenes political dealings pulled few punches, with Ms. Barrymore's presence strongly felt. A much better film than expected.

Katie For CongressReviewed bytelegonusVote: 9/10

The Farmer's Daughter is a disarmingly charming comedy from the late forties featuring an Oscar-winning performance by Loretta Young in the title role, as a farm-girl turned housemaid in a congressman's family who steals her boss's heart. The rest of the cast give nicely tuned performance, with no real hamming from anyone, which in the case of Ethel Barrymore as the family matriarch, is somewhat surprising, as she tended to overdo it with her eyes and that patrician voice,--but not here. Joseph Cotten's natural good natured goofiness works well in the film, and like Miss Barrymore, he reins himself in more than usual here. Charles Bickford as the butler is fine also. The best performance in the movie for my money, though, is that of Rhys Williams, as an amorous and amoral house-painter who is also the villain of the piece. Director Hank Potter paces the film well, and the sets are excellently designed and beautiful to behold, especially that of the main house. There's a lot of surface intelligence in the movie, if not much real braininess despite, near the end, its attempt to wring some Capraesque meaning from its slight story. A very good but not great film, this one's worth seeing for what passed for upper echelon if not quite top of the line entertainment a half century or more ago.
