Overview

Synopsis

The Kettles on Old MacDonald's Farm
The 8-year-old "Ma and Pa Kettle Series" came to an end with The Kettles on Old MacDonald's Farm. In her last screen appearance, Marjorie Main is back as Ma Kettle, while Parker Fennelly replaces the defecting Percy Kilbride as Pa Kettle. This time, Ma and Pa try to smooth the path of romance for newlyweds Sally Flemming (Gloria Talbot) and Brad Johnson (John Smith). Despite her wealthy parents' objections, Sally intends to "rough it" with her back-to-the-soil husband by living on the Kettles' old, ramshackle farm. Ensuing comic complications include a set-to with a bunch of crooked loggers and a wild appearance at a rodeo. A worthwhile finale to this durable series, The Kettles on Old MacDonald's Farm was still making the second-run-theater rounds as late as 1960. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Kettevalt Mennyezet
This film seems to be saying that even when you try hard, things may still not work out. Julia (Juli Basti) works in a factory but has taken it upon herself to check in with different people to make sure everything is going well for them. To that end, she comes up to a house where two older girls and a little boy are left alone for long periods of time because Arpad (Jan Nowicki) their father has to work late. When Juli talks to the father he agrees to let her move in because the children need a mother, and she still continues with her work in the factory. Soon Juli and Arpad have developed a romantic attachment, but he has an alcohol problem which is probably at the source of some troubles at work that land him in jail. When he gets out, he is arrested again for political reasons. Meanwhile, Juli has decided to move out, and she becomes seriously ill and ends up in the hospital. All told, the future seems to hold no good tidings for either Juli or Arpad, much less the hapless children. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
