BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2019 (36 movies items)

" Amazon Prime- 1hr. 42min. First Viewing It's a bit too sitcom-y in it's humor, and a bit too pedestrian in it's politics, but Born Yesterday is a sweet, funny, and charming classic. While I wouldn't go as far as to say she deserved the 1950 Oscar (just look at the lineup there), Judy Holliday is a tornado of energy here.

"Adapted from the popular stage play by Garson Kanin, 'Born Yesterday' retained its Broadway star Judy Holliday in the lead role of Billie Dawn, the girlfriend of a corrupt, bullying tycoon, who is assigned a tutor to teach her proper etiquette. But reportedly Holliday initially turned down the opportunity to reprise the role on screen, leading to names such as Rita Hayworth, Gloria Grahame, Jean Arthur and Lana Turner being mentioned in relation to the part.
