This was one of the Judy films that I've been wanting to see for a long time, as it does not appear to be avalible on video in the UK, So I got it from the USA, and luckily my televideo can play NTSC tapes!
This is one of my fave Joots movies. She plays a stronger character then in any of her early MGM movies. -For once she isn't running after a man she cannot have, and is not feeling unattractive compared to a more glamourous star. (poor Judy who had a low self esteem was often put in these roles) She plays Lily Mars, a strong willed, ambitious and stubbon young lady who is determined to be noticed by a big Broadway producer, and will do it by any means. Judy really shows her comic talents in this movie, and looks lovely.
