Overview

Synopsis

Private Snuffy Smith
Billy DeBeck's classic comic strip "Barney Google and Snuffy Smith" was brought to the screen in the pig-bladder Monogram service comedy Private Snuffy Smith. Diminutive silent-screen funster Bud Duncan stars as hillbilly Snuffy Smith, while Sarah Padden is seen as his giant-economy-sized wife Loweezy. Upon arriving in boot camp, draftee Snuffy immediately runs afoul of irascible sergeant Cooper, played with the fury of a mad dog by Edgar Kennedy. After stumbling and bumbling his way through basic training, Snuffy redeems himself by exposing a gang of Fifth Columnists. About as subtle as a kick in the head, Private Snuffy Smith can be quite funny if one is in the proper frame of mind, though the film isn't quite as memorable as its sequel, the gloriously yclept Hillbilly Blitzkrieg. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Li'l Abner
This is the first of two filmed adaptations of Al Capp's classic comic strip, in which the title hillbilly (Granville Owen) does his best to avoid the marital advances of girlfriend Daisy Mae (Martha O'Driscoll). ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

The Las Vegas Hillbillys
Country and western star Ferlin Husky plays a backwoods yokel who inherits a Las Vegas saloon staffed by barmaid Mamie Van Doren. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Hillbillys in a Haunted House
Horror, comedy, and country corn combine when country singers Woody Weathrby and Boots Malone get caught in a big storm en route to the Nashville Jamboree and end up taking shelter in a creepy looking old mansion that is said to be haunted. Though plenty of spooky things go on there, the hapless hayseeds quickly figure out that the haunting has more to do with a ring of international agents led by the enigmatic and sly Madame Wong than it does the supernatural. The spies have made the abandoned building their headquarters as they endeavor to steal a valuable atomic secret. This was the final film of Basil Rathbone. It is also a sequel to Las Vegas Hillbillies (1966). ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
