Introduced by Terence Davies.

Davies gave a second life to the hit title song of this, the first of four films to star the late, great Debbie Reynolds in the role of Tambrey “Tammy” Tyree, a barefoot Mississippian fireplug who lives happily half-wild on a houseboat with moonshiner Grandpa Walter Brennan, until one day she finds herself drawn into an unlikely romance with suave, well-to-do country squire Leslie Nielsen.
