Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ron Ormond, the Carolina-based purveyor of bottom-budget "regionals," was producer of The Girl From Tobacco Row. Per its title, the film concerns a young lady from a tobacco-growing community, played by Rachel Romen. Surrounded by a flock of inbred boyfriends who won't take no for an answer, Rachel struggles to rise above her poverty-stricken surroundings. Legendary singing cowboy Tex Ritter, who certainly didn't need the money, is top billed in this inexpensive melodrama. Co-directed by producer Ormond and his wife June, this drama features their son Tim Ormond in the cast.
