Audience Reviews for Snuffy Smith, Yard Bird


There was a period in studio film history (and in the funny papers) wherein yuckin' the yokels was quite the easy ticket, done frequently and often. One exhibit is this comic take on a once popular Sunday comic. Expect some "sage" advice delivered at least once from one of "God's simple creatures" (It's coming when you hear, "... Ah might nawt be an ed-ju-ma-kated city slicker but ..."). These types of film, glorifying country living, and the people who do it, are now curios of time when the public longed for less stressful days of yore, or what they took for that same, truth or fiction, and are only nowadays finally falling out of style ... sorta. Ugh.
