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
The $210 billboard on Columbus Circle would be worth $1680 a month in 2010. See more »
When Gladys goes on "The People Speak" and is obviously reading from cue cards, she breaks the word "getting" into two halves, as if the word wrapped: "get-" ending one line and "ting" starting the next. But when the cue card is shown a moment later, "getting" is in the middle of a line, not wrapped. See more »
The way it looks to me, Mr. Adams... there are two kinds of people. The ones who would do anything to make a name for themselves and the ones who would do almost anything.
Evan Adams III:
To which are you?
Ah, I'll let you know.

A cute story about a woman who gets it in her head to make herself a celebrity just by putting her name all over town, AND it works, but at what cost?? The great Judy Holiday plays Gladys Glover. She buys time on a few billboards around town to show off her name. Next thing she knows Peter Lawford is after her for one of those billboards for his drug store chain. In return he offers her several other billboards and to model for his ads. He wines and dines our dear Gladys to get what he wants. Throw in Jack Lemmon(in a early performance) who just wants Gladys to stay the little sweet unknown girl that he fell in love with, and you get this funny little comic gem. Here's hoping it comes out soon in DVD.....
