PG | | Drama, Romance
In 1920, Inge, a German national, travels from Norway to rural Minnesota for her arranged marriage to Olaf, a Norwegian farmer; bureaucracy and prejudice cause major complications.
Elizabeth Reasers' Norwegian pronunciation was so bad that after Dagbladet (one of Norway's biggest news-papers) stumbled upon this film, they posted a clip from it with the title "What is she trying to say?"
You hungry? hungry?
Inge: I could eat a horse.
Brownie: Well we could find dat.
In several prominent scenes both on farmsteads and in the church, there is a farmer with a "Carhartt logo" on his work jacket. Although the Carhartt company made work clothes since 1889, in the 1920's they were mostly worn by railroad workers, not farmers. In addition, the "C" type logo was not used until much later.
