THE FARMER'S DAUGHTER Film Screening at Riverview Theater

Click to see the original trailer...

A 1947 dramatic comedy film tells the story of a Swedish-American farmgirl who, working as a maid for a Congressman and his politically powerful mother, finds herself on an unexpected path towards politics. It stars Loretta Young (who won an Oscar for her role), Joseph Cotten, Ethel Barrymore, and Charles Bickford.

We’ll have treats, a trivia contest, and doorprizes as well! Time to be announced (it will begin between 7 & 7:30). Tickets available from Ingebretsen's (stop in!) or the night of the screening at the theater. A wonderful way to begin the holiday season.  At the Riverview Theater in Minneapolis.
