Philadelphia in the summer of 1876 and lots of celebration to mark America's first hundred years. The Rogers family are visited by their aunt Zenia (Constance Bennerr), who brings with her a young Frenchman, Philippe Lascalles (Cornel Wilde), who is in charge of the French pavillon. Rogers family daughters, Julia (Jeanne Crain) and Edith (Linda Darnell), fall in love with Philippe, while their father, Jesse Rogers (Walter Brennan), tries to promote his inventions and hang onto his railroad job. With Zenia's help, he does both, while Julia wins the love of Philippe and Edith finally says yes to her devoted suitor Dr. Ben Phelps (William Eythe).Written by

Although big band singer Kay St-Germaine sang for Linda Darnell in both "Hangover Square" (1945) and "My Darling Clementine" (1946), she did not sing for Miss Darnell in this film as several sources wrongly assume. A classically-trained soprano sings for Miss Darnell this time. See more »
This movie was 20th Century Fox answer to Meet Me In St. Louis. Although it isn't a great movie, it's a lot of fun. The music was by Jerome Kern and was his last score. The cast is good but Constance Bennett and Walter Brennan are outstanding. Typical1940's escapist fare.
