Girl Crazy (Original 1930)


GIRL CRAZY follows the story of Danny Churchill, who has been sent by his parents to Custerville, Arizona, to manage his family’s ranch and to focus on more serious matters than alcohol and women. However, Danny turns the place into a dude ranch, imports Broadway showgirls and hires Kate Forthergill as an entertainer. Eventually, visitors come from both coasts to the ranch and Danny falls in love with the local postmistress, Molly Gray.
