This is effectively a story about a nice widowed fast city woman, with painted lips and long tapering lashes wearing short short mini skirts. This vamp and vixen moves to a quiet way conservative sleepy town named Harper Valley. She dares to join the PTA that bastion of moral rectitude. Her outspoken progressive ways are immediately held suspect. She in her short skirts is proclaimed by Harper Valley PTA a vile role model for young people. She is labelled by the PTA as a person not fit to shape the minds of impressionable youth.
She is in truth a good woman of honest if not pure motives and unsullied honor. The town would have you think she was the devils agent...P> The song of the same name tends to tell the story of the movie but its still well worth the watching. It's more funny now than shocking....

HARPER VALLEY P.T.A. is a cute comedy, based on the chart-topping country song from Jeannie C. Riley (written by Tom T. Hall).

Barbara Eden plays the vivacious Mrs Stella Johnson, who walks to the beat of her own drum, much to the horror of her strait-laced neighbours and the members of the Harper Valley P.T.A. One afternoon Stella's daughter Dee (Susan Swift) comes home from school with a letter from the secretary of the P.T.A. which threatens to expell Dee if Stella does not conform. Stella and her wacky best friend Alice (Nanette Fabray) decide that a little revenge is on the cards...!

This film is very much a one-note caper comedy, but the performances of Barbara Eden and Nanette Fabray are so wonderful that they greatly enliven the limitations of the material. Susan Swift is lovely as Dee, and the formidable president of the P.T.A. is played by Audrey Christie in her best fashion. Also featuring Louis Nye, Ronny Cox, Pat Paulsen and John Fiedler.

HBO's new DVD release contains a crisp anamorphic print.

It's funny how we remember things over the years from our childhood. I watched this movie when it first aired on TV when I was a child. I loved it then, and I now. It's funny how little I actually remembered however, just the most dramatic scenes, especially the pink elephants; and how much I didn't get back then that I do as an adult in the way of subtle inferences. It's not the greatest or smartest comedy movie ever written, but it's funny and sweet.

This movie is a fun, stupid screwball comedy and lots of fun.

One of those good ol rainy day comedies to watch and just enjoy. Barbara Eden is just adorable and the cast is filled with wonderful character actors that are pure camp.

Tom Hall's song "Harper Valley PTA", sung by Jeannie C. Reilly, about hypocricy in a small town, inspired this film, starring Barbara Eden as the Stella Johnson, the mother who "socked it to the Harper Valley PTA". The first few scenes of the film follows the song very closely. After crashing the PTA meeting and exposing the hypocricy of the PTA members, the PTA doesn't exactly get nicer to her, and Stella, with the help of her friend Alice (Nanette Fabray), decide to get revenge, by playing pranks on the various PTA members. She also gets help from Willis Newton (Ronny Cox), a member of the PTA who disapprove of the way the PTA is run. He even talks her into running for president of the PTA.

The story is thin but there's quite a lot of fun scenes, although the overall pace of the movie might have been a bit better if it was a little bit shorter. As it is, there are some parts where it gets a bit slow. Acting is good. Eden is a great choice for the lead role and she's also helped by a good supporting cast. Overall this is a good but not great lightweight feelgood movie that you'll probably like if you liked the song.

Format: DVD
The message of "Harper Valley PTA" is a simple one: don't judge others unless you want trouble. Barbara Eden, from TV's "I Dream of Jeannie" fame, stars as Stella, a single woman living in Harper Valley, Ohio with her daughter. The girl comes home from school one day with a letter from the local parent/teacher association stating they do not approve of Stella's lifestyle and dress code. The plot of the film starts off here as Stella seeks revenge on all the PTA members by going into their lives and revealing they are not the prim and proper individuals that they portray. The movie is based on the hit Jeannie C. Reilly song of the same name from 1968, written by "The Storyteller" himself, Tom T. Hall. The movie would also spawn a minor successful TV series on NBC in the early eighties that only lasted 30 episodes. "Harper Valley PTA" is a simple and funny comedy that everyone will enjoy. If you like seeing snotty people get their comeuppance you will enjoy this film. The best part of the movie is the famous "hair scene" where a high-class snob has a dinner party. Earlier in the day she had her hair done without knowing that Stella had the chemicals for the hair color tampered with. You will roar with laughter when you see what happens.
The DVD, unfortunately, is barebones, and the trailer isn't even included. At least, though, this true comedy classic is available on DVD for posterity. There is a one sided sheet of paper that comes with the disc featuring the chapter search.
