Elmer Rice play a "lost" vehicle for Betty Hutton.
3 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

A Betty Hutton fan for virtually her entire career, I haven't seen this since it was first issued & wonder why it's been neglected. Granted, she didn't sing much (if at all), but it's an interesting vehicle for her comic talents. She plays a female Walter Mitty who imagines herself in numerous extreme situations. I can remember only Sadie Thompson in a seedy South Sea saloon, & Cio-Cio-San in Madame Butterfly, lip-synching someone else's rendition of "Un Bel Di."

Hutton's best work, both musically & dramatically, has also been neglected by VHS & DVD. Somebody Loves Me, based on the lives of vaudevillians Blossom Seeley & her husband, played by Ralph Meeker. Billie Byrd also had a choice wise-cracking role.
