Loretta Young, Cotten The Farmer's Daughter

1947's The Farmer's Daughter garnered Loretta Young a Best Actress Academy Award, and Cotten was there in strong support.  He plays Congressman Glenn Morley, whose household and career are turned upside down when his mother (Ethel Barrymore) takes on a new Swedish maid, Katrin (Young).  It soon becomes apparent to the Morleys and to their curmudgeonly butler, Clancy (Charles Bickford) that Katie is a woman of many talents... politics is one of them -- but on the opposite side of her employers!  Daughter is a very enjoyable film, finely crafted by director H.C. Potter, and the performances by the four principle players are a treat.              more
