Debbie Reynolds in ‘Tammy and The Bachelor’

Debbie Reynolds in “Tammy and the Bachelor” (1957). TCM: In a perhaps ironic twist of fate, Debbie Reynolds was 25, married to singer Eddie Fisher, and pregnant with her daughter Carrie when she played the innocent, backwoods 17-year-old Tambley “Tammy” Tyree in Tammy and the Bachelor (1957). It was a Cinderella story with a dash of hokum and more than a dash of the “bright as a new copper penny” personality of Debbie Reynolds. The combination added up to a gold record for Reynolds, a box office hit, and a franchise for Universal. … Shot in only a few weeks between April 24th and early June 1956, the film told the story of a southern, backwoods teenager Tammy (Reynolds), who rescues handsome pilot Peter Brent (Leslie Nielsen) when his plane crashes into a swamp. Later, after her moonshine-making grandpa gets arrested, she is sent to live with Peter’s family and her spunky, upbeat manner wins his heart. Directed by Joseph Pevney and produced by Ross Hunter (the former actor-turned-producer who specialized in glossy Technicolor women’s films in the 1950s), “Tammy and the Bachelor” was based on the 1948 novel “Tammy Out of Time” by Cid Ricketts Sumner.
