The Code of the Hills, and Making Love, Dog Patch Style

Martha O’Driscoll was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and studied singing and dancing as a child. At the age of thirteen, she lied about her age and got a part in a Paramount movie as a chorus girl. When she appeared in this story about chasing a man to make him her husband, Martha was only eighteen years old.

Her acting career was moderately successful, but super star fame never shone its light on her career. In 1943 she married a Navy Lieutenant Commander, but they separated ten months later. On July 18, 1947 she got a legal divorce decree, and two days later, on July 20, 1947, she married a wealthy businessman from Chicago, building a life and a family with him that included three sons and one daughter.

In this cornball comedy, she is Daisy Mae Scragg, and her heart’s desire is to marry Li’l Abner Yokum, a mountain boy with everything but brains. For Daisy Mae, this makes him the perfect husband. Following the storyline of the famous newspaper comic strip, Li’l Abner never wants to kiss a girl, because the Code of the Mountains says that when a boy kisses a girl, they must get married the following day at noon.

This leads to that, and Li’l Abner comes to the amazing conclusion that he must marry Daisy Mae, and quickly. He goes to her house and tells her to come out into the woods with him, because he wants to make love to her, . . . Powerful, romantic love, Dog Patch style.

It seems that this is the end of a riotous romantic comedy, but relax, because it is only the beginning of the troubles that will face weak-minded Li’l Abner and the girls who want to make him their own. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
