Storyline

Cam Ellerby (Ray Middleton) brings his traveling medicine show to town and it spells glamor and excitement to young Sylvia Townsend (Eileen Christy). Her mother, Kathleen (Lucille Norman), recalls the days when she was part of a similar troupe before her husband began wandering. Kathleen has plans to remarry, but discovers that Ellerby is her long-lost husband. Most of the story takes place in Kokomo, Indiana and the full name, as expressed in the film, of the sign-painter Jim Riley (Harry Carey Jr.)is James Whitcomb Riley, who later wrote a poem or two.

I saw this one in '53 and felt it worth commenting on.
3 November 1998 | by hi-speedSee all my reviews

This entertaining movie was about a couple of young lovers with some terrific music and singing. Was a low budget musical made by Consolidated Pictures. An independent of the time. Can't remember all the stars but it did have Ray Middleton in it with some singing parts and he played the father of the young woman in love. A version of "Flow Gently Sweet Afton" was the major music theme and the adaption and arrangement with the two lovers singing it were outstanding by any standards then or now!
