Delicious, Deadly, Small-Town Gossip and the Bedroom with Bars on the Windows
Jordan, Ohio is a small fictional town that really exists in many places around the country by many other names. People are very much alike all around the world, and 1949 small town people around the world were very much like the people in this movie. Ronald Reagan is Tom Bates, a teenager brought up by his guardian Judge Merrivale. Young Tom Bates has a high school crush on the daughter of the wealthy Gateley family.
As our drama opens we watch the train pulling into the small Jordan, Ohio train station. A chauffeur is there to pick up his boss, Mr. Gateley, who is mysteriously returning from Chicago. The wealthy man has brought his teenage daughter with him and whisked her secretly home, where she is taken to her bedroom. Her father orders his chauffeur to have metal bars installed on his daughter’s bedroom windows, and will tell no one what has happened.
Arriving on the same train that night was Minta Hagen carrying a small baby girl, and her husband is quietly waiting for her. The Hagen’s go home with their new baby girl to begin family life on the wrong side of the tracks. Faster than the speed of light the ladies of the town are gossiping that the Hagen baby girl must be the illegitimate daughter of the wealthy young girl in the bedroom with bars on the windows.
Soon we have been transported eighteen years into the future and discover That Hagen Girl, Mary Hagen, being played by teenage legendary actress Shirley Temple. The town gossip about the Hagen girl has followed her all of her life, and she has no idea why she is shunned by the town. She has no idea that Jim and Minta Hagen are not her real parents, and she has no idea about the town gossip concerning her real father.
Tom Bates, who left town when the gossip began so many years ago has just returned to town, and while the whole town is convinced that he is her father, we are left wondering until the final scene about That Hagen Girl, and Who’s Her Daddy? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
