Feudin', Fussin' and A-Fightin' (1948) is a musical comedy film produced by Universal Studios, starring Donald O'Connor. Also featured are Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride, (who later reprised essentially the same roles as Ma and Pa Kettle), with Penny Edwards [3] as the perky love interest.

Plot

Donald O'Connor plays Wilbur McMurtry, a traveling salesman who is captured and held hostage by the local authorities in a small town, who wish to compel him to run in the annual foot-race against a rival town. A highlight of the film is his brilliant dance routine, in a barn, to the Al Jolson song, "Me and My Shadow".

Production

In January 1948 Universal announced they would make a film based on the magazine story The Wonderful Race at Rimrock which would be filmed the following month. It reunited Maine and Kilbridge from The Egg and I. Maine was borrowed from MGM.[4][5]

O'Connor has a dance number which involves running up a wall, which later inspired his "Make 'Em Laugh" routine in Singing in the Rain.[6]
