Sis Hopkins, released in 1941, is a musical comedy film starring Judy Canova, Bob Crosby, and Charles Butterworth. The film is set in a small town in the United States and tells the story of Sis Hopkins, a country girl who dreams of making it big in the city. Judy Canova plays the role of Sis Hopkins, a young woman living in the countryside with her family. Sis dreams of becoming a singer and going to the city to make her mark in the music industry. Her father, however, is a stern man who doesn't support her dreams and wants her to stay on the farm and marry her cousin Seaborn.

Bob Crosby plays the role of Jeff, a talent scout who is passing through town. He hears Sis singing and immediately recognizes her talent. He sees her potential and invites her to audition for a radio show in the city. Sis is thrilled at the opportunity to chase her dreams, but she has to convince her father to let her go.
