-- Agreeable musical about a farm family's visit to the Iowa State Fair where dad Charles Winninger expects his entry to win the hog competition, mom Fay Bainter hopes her fortified mincemeat will get a blue ribbon, son Dick Haymes falls for married singer Vivian Blaine and daughter Jeanne Crain finds romance with newspaper reporter Dana Andrews. Directed by Walter Lang, the fairground proceedings are good-natured, the cast has considerable charm and the songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein add some zest to the fun and poignancy to the romance.
