Of course the producer had to spoil the thing by introducing a clandestine love affair between the granddaughter and a neighboring young married •farmer The big farm scene, which purported to be in Iowa, was a threshers' dinner, and it was mostly all right, but what struck a false note for us was the threshers all rushing in to dinner like hogs responding to a farmer's call.
