“When people ask me why I love old movies so much, it’s difficult for me to describe in words the way they make me feel, but all their best qualities are embodied in one film that ought to be more celebrated: Frank Capra’s Lady for a Day.”
– Leonard Maltin
(Henry King) At the Iowa state fair, dad Will Rogers has high hopes for his prize hog, mom Louise Dresser frets about her apple-brandy-laced mincemeat, while kids Janet Gaynor and Norman Foster find fleeting — or is it? — romance. Approx. 97 min. 35mm.
“It’s folksy stuff, all right, but Will Rogers and Frank Craven know how to satirize the characters they embody, and Janet Gaynor, sticky-sweet as she is, knows how to sneak into the audience’s heart.”
– Pauline Kael
“A production that has the charm of naturalness and the virtue of sincerity.”
