Li'l Abner is a 1940 film based on the comic strip of the same name created by Al Capp. The four most recognizable names associated with the film are Buster Keaton as Lonesome Polecat, Jeff York (much better-known as first rival bad-guy, then ally, Mike Fink in the Davy Crockett TV serials) as Li'l Abner, and Milton Berle, who co-wrote the title song.



Li'l Abner becomes convinced that he is going to die within twenty-four hours, so agrees to marry two different girls: Daisy Mae (who has chased him for years) and Wendy Wilecat (who rescued him from an angry mob). It is all settled at the Sadie Hawkins Day race.
