Another of the many raunchy "white trash" comedies of the 1960s, The Farmer's Other Daughter stars Judy Pennebaker in the title role. The farmer is portrayed by Harry Lovejoy, while obligatory travelling salesman is essayed by Bill Michael. What plot there is concerns a beauty contest wherein the candidates are garbed in flimsy bathing suits, which disintegrate when exposed to rain. A tentative stab at political satire occurs towards the end when the impoverished farm community finds itself eligible for foreign aid. Also known as Farm Girl, The Farmer's Other Daughter was considered pretty racy in its time, but now seems as sedate as an episode of Petticoat Junction.
