Tammy and the Bachelor

I wish I could remember the first time I ever saw Tammy and the Bachelor, I'm sure it was on AMC years and years ago (back when all they showed were classic movies and not "Death Wish" marathons) and I totally fell in love with it.

This film stars Debbie Reynolds and Leslie Nielsen (he was a HUNK, y'all!) and is about a poor swamp girl who goes to live with a rich family after she must abandon the houseboat she grew up on. The rich son has a snobby girlfriend, the family is responsible for hosting a "rebel ball" on their gorgeous plantation, the rich son doesn't want to be a businessman, he wants to be a farmer, his girlfriend doesn't support that... can you guess what happens?

Add in Tammy's naivete, her pet goat Nan, a quirky aunt, an understanding father, a conniving best friend, a sweet maid, a snobby mother and you get a really delightful story!

Check out one of my favorite scenes below!

What's your favorite lesser-known old movie? Let us know what movies we may have missed! Also - Any Debbie Reynolds or Leslie Nielsen fans out there?

  1. I can't remember the first time you saw this movie. But I'm sure you're right, it must have been on AMC.
    I wonder-how many times you have seen this movie? I love to hear you quote movies, and this is one of my favs.
