An old classic

3 years, 6 months ago at Mar 16 9:02
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.

Portlander's Movie Log - September, 2013 (31 movies items)

"#24 Watched September 10th - Library DVD - 1st Viewing "This country and its institutions belong to the people who inhibit it." - Billie Dawn Born Yesterday is a comedy in the vein of Educating Rita and My Fair Lady about a corrupt, arrogant millionaire who hires a man to help educate his unrefined fiance and gets more than he bargained for. - it is pretty funny in parts and I really liked Judy Holliday's performance, which brought to mind Lesley Ann Warren's in Victor/Victoria - I also lik"

Filmsite's Greatest Funniest Movie Moments/Scenes (224 movies items)

"The scene of uncouth millionaire junk dealer Harry Brock (Broderick Crawford) playing a silent game of gin rummy with his dumb-blonde, ex-chorus-girl, unrefined mistress Billie Dawn (Judy Holliday); the sound of Billie's unabashedly vulgar, shrill, stupid-sounding, Betty Boop-like voice; Billie's ignorance about the difference between a peninsula and penicillin, but her increased intelligence after being tutored by Paul Varall (William Holden) - i.e., Harry Brock: "Shut up! You ain't gonna be te"
