I saw this picture, right after seeing "Bundle of Joy," thus hoping for Debbie Reynolds patented radiance to be evident in this film as was the case with the former film. No one but Debbie could have performed Tammy any better (the song and the character).
As to Leslie Nielsen, well, I saw a completely different side to his acting ability that we are not used to today. This film is about a young lady who has to move from the Louisiana Bayou because her guardian is taken from her.
She falls for the son of her hostess and there are problems; but the rest is for you to discover.
If anyone ever liked Debbie in anything, this is a must see.
If anyone wants a romantic comedy to enjoy, this is a good pick. This, like "Singin' In the Rain," "Bundle of Joy," and "Two Weeks With Love," show them perfectly.
