An old classic

Judy Hollyday looks gorgeous and gives a very good perfomance. A part from that, it is a rather harmless and innocent but rather dull picture. As it is a classic, it is still worth a look.

"Judy Holliday as Billie Dawn "It always draws a smile to hear Holliday's chorus girl-in-search-of-culture chirp to makeover handler William Holden that a magazine think piece he's written is "the best thing I ever read. I didn't understand a word."

She may have the voice of Betty Boop -- that is, when she isn't yowling "
