Zamah Cunningham Steals the Show
11 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Surprisingly funny little comedy about a day-dreaming young woman who meets her match in a tough sports writer. Based on a hit play by Elmer Rice.

Betty Hutton stars as the dreamer, a woman who walks through life and dreams about "something happening." Then boorish Macdonald Carey arrives for her sister's wedding and he spends the rest of the film trying to get her to live her own life. The "Walter Mitty" stuff is kept to a minimum. and the plot drags in a few places, but the actors are excellent and the one-liners are very funny.

Zamah Cunningham is a total delight as the music teacher, stealing the long scene with her spastic movements and great voice.. Patric Knowles is the brother-in-law, Walter Abel and Peggy Wood are the parents. Virginia Field is the sister. Carolyn Butler is Claire. And Lowell Gilmore is the roue.

Hutton is low-keyed and still very funny. She plays a saloon singer in one dream and sings "Madame Butterfly" in another. As usual, Hutton is excellent. And this is one of the few films I've liked Macdonald Carey in. A must for Betty Hutton fans.
