Gladys Glover has just lost her modelling job when she meets filmmaker Pete Sheppard shooting a documentary in Central Park. For Pete it's love at first sight, but Gladys has her mind on other things -- like making a name for herself. Through a fluke of advertising she winds up with her name plastered over 10 billboards throughout city. Suddenly all of New York is clamoring for Gladys Glover without knowing why and playboy Evan Adams III is making a play for Gladys that even Pete knows will be hard to beat. Written by
Jack Lemmon, who had previously only acted briefly in television, had a tendency to overact for the camera but George Cukor soon convinced him that "less is more." The actor later remarked, "I've learned my craft from that advice. It's the hardest thing in the world to be simple, and the easiest thing in the world to act your brains out and make an ass of yourself." See more »
The address of Glady's boarding house (262 West 61st Street) is actually between West End Avenue and Amsterdam Ave, too far away for the billboard on Columbus Circle to be visible from her window. See more »
[after meeting Gladys in central Park]
Good luck to you, Gladys. I sure hope you make a name for yourself, if that's what you want. If that's what you really want, you'll get it.
I don't know. Just a theory of mine: that not only 'where there's a will, there's a way'... but, 'where's there's a way, there's a will'. See?

Sometimes i heard the name of Judy Holliday. But i had never seen her work. Suddenly, a lovely comedy appeared.
"It should happen to you" tell us about the real dreams, and the false dreams. Gladys Glover, is a name difficult to forget. Our charming character wants to be somebody, and she try to make reality that dream. But she makes it in the mistaken way. Because, maybe is more important the real love of a man than a fake illusion. The illusion of be famous.
Since the naked feet in the park, "It should happen to you" is a great comedy. A comedy about the love, the dreams and ... of course ... big billboards with names.
Recommended for any occasion. Especially, if you want to see a real comedy.
*sorry, if there any mistake there
