OVERVIEW

Brief Synopsis

Rip Smith's opinion-poll business is a failure...until he discovers that the small town of Grandview is statistically identical to the entire country. He and his assistants go there to run polls cheaply and easily, in total secrecy (it would be fatal to let the townsfolk get self-conscious). And of course, civic crusader Mary Peterman must be kept from changing things too much. But romantic involvement with Mary complicates life for Rip; then suddenly everything changes...

    It has the look and feel of a Frank Capra film. Jimmy Stewart does his usual terrific job, Jane Wyman is fine as well. It's a good story that is good... MORE>
