Young man trying to find property he has purchased. Depression era.
I saw this movie when I was 8 years old, so my memories are not nearly as cynical as the previous comments. I've never forgotten a funny scene when Glenn Ford is sitting at the counter in a restaurant. He asks for a cup of hot water and proceeds to add ketchup, salt , pepper, and crackers. He's making soup, for free. When the owner realizes what Glenn is doing, he removes the doughnuts from the counter. Disparage his acting, if you want. I remember being so struck with Glenn Ford looking for Shady Acres that I watched for his other movies. The Depression didn't really end until 1942 with the beginning of WW2 and full employment. But even an 8 year old could see this was a future star.
