first appearance of ma and pa kettle here. macmurray and colbert head for the farm lands to get away from the city life. they have all sorts of problems adjusting, but like it in the end. the best part is after a fire burns most of their property the neighbors come to their rescue with building materials, seed, and livestock to get them back on their feet again. this kind of community thinking is inspiring stuff. not a fantastic film, a definitely dated in the women’s rights/etc. departments, but good overall.
