The Farmer Takes A Wife (1953)


Henry Levin    


Walter Bullock (screenplay),  Sally Benson (screenplay)  


Betty GrableDale RobertsonThelma Ritter
The Farmer Takes a Wife is a musicalized remake of the 1935 film of the same name. Betty Grable and Dale Robertson star in the roles originally essayed by Janet Gaynor and Henry Fonda. Set in the early 19th century, the plot details the trials and tribulations of those hardy souls who settled along the Erie Canal. Grable plays Molly Larkin, the girlfriend of rough-and-tumble canal-boat captain Jotham Klore (John Carroll). Much to Klore's dismay, she hires mild-mannered farmer Daniel Harrow (Robertson) to work on the boat. Molly and Daniel fall in love and marry, but there's many a heartbreak and letdown before a happy ending can be reached. Though not in any way a "typical" Betty Grable musical, Farmer Takes a Wife was misleadingly advertised as such: one promotional still showed a grinning Grable anachronistically garbed in tight jeans and a bare-midriff blouse! Both versions of The Farmer Takes a Wife were adapted from the stage play by Frank B. Elser and Marc Connelly.

  1. The Farmes Takes a Wife 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 16th 2018

    I am very glad with the DVD and very glad with the service. I like to buy in Zeus because I always find something rare in this place with good quality. This film is not the best from Betty Grable, but it is very entertaining and a wonderful support ofThelma Ritter. I feel completely satisfied. Thanks!
