Remember how I said in my review of It Should Happen to You that I didn't really 'get' Judy Holliday? Well, I watched this and loved her…and the film. I'm so glad I saw this, as it was a lot more fun that I was expecting. Plus, Judy just plays this type of role to perfection. It helps, too, that her character is slightly less ditzy than usual. (I also noticed that--for whatever reason--her characteristic accent is not quite as strong here.)
If you watch a lot of old movies, you will surely spot several familiar character actors—John Williams, Richard Deacon, Ray Collins, and others (including narration by George Burns).
I also really liked Paul Douglas in this. He's not your typical Hollywood leading man and I just love that! Plus, he has a great screen presence. His budding romance with Judy's character is really sweet.
Over all, I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed this. It's a very cute movie that is definitely worth checking out. I'm so glad I decided to give Judy another chance! :)
