The Con-Man Swindlers and the Girl with a Gun

When you visit the Louvre museum in Paris, be sure to visit the legendary statue of Cupid and Psyche, created by one of Italy’s most famous sculptors, Antonio Canova. His neoclassic marble sculptures grace many of the finest museums and private collections around the world.

About a hundred years after the great sculptor’s death, one of his descendants, Joseph Francis Canova, was a cotton broker in Florida who had a daughter he named Juliette Canova. Juliette wanted to go to the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music to become a famous singer, but the Great Depression had begun, and she needed to start earning money quickly. She teamed up with her sister and brothers to create a Vaudeville comedy act and discovered that she had a natural talent for making people laugh.

She used makeup and trademark pigtails to create a love-starved Ozark country bumpkin hillbilly character. After a successful career on the Vaudeville stage, she created a national radio network situation comedy that ran for twelve years. It wouldn’t be long until Hollywood called and put her hillbilly hero character in comedies like this one.

In this adventure she is a woman who is slavishly working for her Aunt in the small-town of Greebville. The homely and awkward Judy wants to become a sophisticated lady and has purchased a learn-by-mail course on etiquette and manners. It won’t be long until she bumps into a con-man who will immediately notice her hillbilly ignorance and decide that she will make the perfect patsy for his next big-time swindle.

The town banker will be the target, and Judy will be set up as the fall-girl. – What could go wrong with these innocent and unsuspecting small-town bumpkins? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
