The Impossibly Difficult Name that Movie Game

We felt like being particularly cruel this month and posting a truly obscure Impossibly Difficult screenshot. This lovely scene is from an excellent, but very underrated classic. It was noteworthy for launching the film career of one of Hollywood's biggest actors.

As usual, if you are not familiar with the rules to the Impossibly Difficult Name that Movie game or the prize, click here!

Good luck guessing!


Caftan Woman correctly guessed The Farmer Takes a Wife ( 1935 ). This film introduced Henry Fonda to audiences in theaters across America and shot him to instant fame. Fonda first became Dan Harrow on stage, before he was asked to reprise his role for the film version. Later, in 1953 The Farmer Takes a Wife was remade as a musical starring Betty Grable and Dale Robertson.


  1. Maybe 'Up the River' if we're talking about start of Specer Tracy's career? Taci.

  2. The Farmer Takes a Wife.

    Everybody sing, "15 miles on the Erie Canal".

    1. Spot on Caftan Woman! You sure know your Henry Fonda films! I bet you recognized the Sassy Sal from a mile off. Boy, would I love to live on a canal boat like theirs...without Bickford of course.
