The New Musical Comedy, "Li'l Abner"

December 18, 1959.  This Paramount movie starred Peter Palmer, Leslie Parrish, Stubby Kaye, Howard St. John, Julie Newmar, Stella Stevens, Billie Hayes and Robert Strauss.  "Lively Gene DePaul - Johnny Mercer musical comedy based on the Broadway version of Al Capp's comic strip; loud and brassy, with corny comedy, some good songs.  Stubby Kaye is fine as Marryin' Sam; other Dogpatch characters vividly enacted.  Look sharp for a young Valerie Harper and Beth Howland among the chorus girls." - From Leonard Maltin's Movie and Video Guide.  Directed by Melvin Frank.
