Editorial Reviews

Radio stars Lum Edwards (Lauck) and Abner Peabody (Goff) make their film debut in this film about two small-town men and their general store, the "Jot-Em-Down" store in Pine Ridge, Arkansas. Lum and Abner are dedicated to the effort to raise money for and construct the town's first mobile hospital unit. They are also performing an investigation to find the hit-and-run driver who killed little boy Jimmy (Watson), and also manage to find time to bring together lovers Dr. Kenneth Barnes (Wilcox) and Alice (Langford).

Format: DVD
Lum & Abner (Chester Lauck and Norris Goff) were a popular radio team for 25 years beginning in 1931, and they moved to the big screen in 1940 for DREAMING OUT LOUD, which was popular enough to lead to half a dozen sequels (the last, a belated fare-thee-well, was produced in 1956). It is one heck of a strange film, part backwoods comedy, part heart-tugging drama; it's as if a soap opera broke out in the cornfields of HEE-HAW.

Proprietors of the Jot `em Down General Store in Pine Ridge, Arksansas, Lum Edwards and Abner Peabody have a nice perch with which to comment on the goings-on in town (what goings-on there are, if any) and get involved as Mary Worth-type helpers to young lovers, kids with dark secrets, the town drunk, and anybody else stumbling through. (Note that Lauck and Goff were in their mid-30s when this film was produced, but were made up to appear 30 to 50 years older).

The first third of the picture is pure corn, as our heroes discuss changing the signs in front of the store (one says "Fall Clearance Sale", t'other says "Spring Sweep Sale", and they finally decide to leave `em both up in case'n they ever decide to have another one of either). There's a shiftless gentleman who sleeps by the stove all day; Abner explains that he has been tryin' ter get a position as steamboat captain on a riverboat. "There ain't no river near here," Lum retorts. "He'll wait," Abner responds. Perhaps the funniest scene has the two of them playing checkers; when Lum quits, Abner decides to go right on playing checkers by his lonesome, only he gets in a big argument when he accuses himself of cheating.

From this urbane, witty photoplay we slip right into the crisis, when the spunky young daughter of the town's drunk becomes the victim of a hit-and-run driver.

It seemed promising but...the film is only 15 minutes long and it's the very last 15 minutes of the movie so...

Don't waste your 15 minutes.

This is just a small piece of the movie. Amazon needs to get the whole movie back up. Until then, don't waste your time with this.
