SUMMERSTOCK - Missed It Again
Don't know how many if any have ever seen the 1950 movie "SUMMERSTOCK" starring Judy Garland and Gene Kelly, in which Judy and her mom (played by Marjorie Main) trade the use of their farm's barn out to a musical troupe for help gathering crops. In the movie, Phil Silvers, who plays one of the troupe's honchos, takes the family's new 8N out for a joy ride and crashes it big time, scattering various parts along the ground and tree limbs! Additional scenes show the N being resurrected and near the end of the film, the tractor once again looks fresh off the assembly line. The movie played earlier today on Direct TV's Turner Classic Movies channel, but as usual when the film is aired, I saw only the last few minutes of it. It is a good entertaining film with top notch stars to watch if you're into old movies!
