    Second entry in the Lum & Abner movie series, September 17, 2008

    This review is from: Bashful Bachelor (DVD)
    The rural-flavored Lum and Abner radio program aired from 1932 to ’54. Co’lum’bus Edwards and Abner Peabody were proprietors of the Jot ’em Down Store, in mythical Pine Ridge, Arkansas. Because of the 15-minute show’s popularity, the town of Waters, AK was renamed Pine Ridge in 1936. The L&A franchise became a film series in 1940, with seven programmers in all issued– THE BASHFUL BACHELOR (presented here by REEL ENTERPRISES) was the second entry.

    Abner trades the Jot ’em Down’s delivery truck for a racehorse and runs it against a nag owned by a hated business rival. Lum writes a marriage proposal note for Geraldine, but the Widder Abernathy gets it by mistake.

    TWO WEEKS TO LIVE, the third Lum & Abner film, is also available from REEL ENTERPRISES.

    Parenthetical number preceding title is 1 to 10 viewer poll rating found at a film resource website.

    (5.1) The Bashful Bachelor (1942) – Chester Lauck/Norris Goff/Zasu Pitts/Grady Sutton/Constance Purdy/Irving Bacon/Benny Rubin

    This picture would never make it today, that’s for sure. Even when it was made, it probably didn’t do too well. But these two were on the radio for years (right after Lone Ranger in LA). Watching a Movie of these same two was a memory trip for me. I liked watching it a lot, myself. I think my kids would think it was dumb. But the grandkids would think it was funny.
