TITLE: LI'L ABNER

Dogpatch is ground zero.


LI'L ABNER

DIRECTOR: Melvin Frank
YEAR: 1959

Comedy ensues when the government decides to place an atomic test site in the town of Dogpatch, USA. Adapted from the Broadway musical based on Al Capp's popular comic strip. The film's surreal Technicolor charms age better than its satire. Watch for standout performances by Julie Newmar as Stupifyin' Jones and Stella Stevens as Appassionata Von Climax.
