I’M FROM ARKANSAS (Theatrical Release USA 1944)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì 

I’m From Arkansas—small story with no flesh, only skeleton—supports itself on some great music and short entertainment routines. No surprises. Clean dialogue with a gentle presentation belonging to a previous era in entertainment.

This musical black and white film is about a sow, her huge litters of piglets, a corporation’s interests, a small country community, dance hall girls, and a small western singing group.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. Know there is not much going on here except great singing and music. It is as if the producers were almost promoting the singers and made a simple story around the musical groups to promote them in film.
