(3 out of 5 stars)

"The first LI'L ABNER movie brought Al Capp's Dogpatch characters vividly to life and is in many respects superior to the screen adaptation of the 1950s "Abner" Broadway musical.

After costuming and much makeup, this picture's cast were dead ringers for the newspaper comic folks they portrayed. In particular, Buster Keaton as Lonesome Polecat deserves mention. He is perfect and hilarious as the strange little Indian that brews cauldrons of Kickapoo Joy Juice. Also seen are many other silent era comics. (Doodles Weaver, of Spike Jones "Feitelbaum" fame, cameos as a local yokel.)

Here, an average plot is assisted by spot-on performances. Fans of Capp's work will definitely NOT be disappointed in this little comedy that's still as yummy as "poke chops fo' brekfiss, poke chops fo' lunch, and fo' suppah....MO' poke chops!!"

(Note that as of 9/09, Mona Ray, who played Abner's mom, Pansy Yokum was still alive at age 104. "Abner" was her final movie.)


Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll rating.

"The video is defective as it plays half way through then starts over from the beginning. I spoke with the producer & he advised that the master in the hands of Amazon (publisher) is probably defectiveLi'l Abner (1940)"
