Top-featured Connie Francis and Harve Presnell (seemingly cast more from contractual commitments than suitability) are adequate; she as the backwoods Nevada US mail-woman saddled with pop Frank Faylen, a chronic gambler, while Presnell is the bigcity playboy exiled to the boondocks to avoid a breach-of-promise suit by chorine Sue Ane Langdon.

Joby Baker is Presnell’s buddy who eventually pairs with a rather mute Susan Holloway and Fred Clark is good as the neighboring rancher who hitches up with Hortense Petra. Langdon remains the most impressive of the principals; she makes a firstrate shrew.

Among the 11 tunes are five vintage Gershwin numbers, including ‘I Got Rhythm’, subject of what is the big production number.
