Not quite up to the Broadway show, but a film worth seeing
About the only Kurt Weill-Ira Gershwin song included from the Broadway show about a lady advertising executive undergoing psychoanalysis is "The Saga of Jenny", but that is almost enough. Just why this film version appears lost to Television and Video viewers is a puzzle to me as well as a great pity. It was a great vehicle for Ginger Rogers, and as a story, both thoughtful and entertaining. Remember the line from the song, something like this: "Jenny made her mind up when she was twelve, that into foreign languages she would delve. But at seventeen at Vassar, it was quite a blow. In twenty-seven languages, she couldn't say no!" What a song!
