Howard Keel, Van Johnson, and Barry Sullivan are among the Three Guys Named Mike Jane Wyman has to pick
Just watched this M-G-M romantic comedy that's now in the public domain on YouTube. It stars Jane Wyman as Marcy Lewis, a flight attendant-called stewardess then-just beginning her career as she encounters the title characters almost all at the same time: Mike Jamison-pilot (Howard Keel), Michael Lawrence-research scientist/bartender (Van Johnson), and Mike Tracy-advertising exec (Barry Sullivan). All three fall for her and they all ask for her hand as she makes her pick unlike today when she would have probably picked none of them at least during that ending moment. Anyway, this was quite funny as the film went on though also a bit contrived the way things get set up. Still, it's enjoyable enough and so on that note, Three Guys Named Mike is worth a look for fans of old-fashioned fluff like me. P.S. I noticed Barbara Billingsley as Wyman's instructor. This was years before she became Beaver and Wally's mom and even more than that before stealing a scene in Airplane! as that jive-talking elderly woman! Also, I chuckled a bit when Jane's character mentioned to those three Mikes of a sudden phone call to board a plane to Dallas as any viewer of a show with that name would instantly know about Mr. Keel's involvement in that program some 30-plus years later!
