      Audience Member young's final pic and she is good here Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A very sweet and simple film about a young couple who buy a small town paper and their struggles getting it to be profitable. Good performances, especially from the supporting cast. Edgar Buchanan, Frank McHugh Jane Darwell and Gladys George are all wonderful. Light and entertaining.
