Gladys Glover just wants her 15 minutes of fame but she may just be pure enough to get much more.
Judy Holliday as Gladys Glover, working girl of the 50's just looking for her 15 minutes of fame, finds more than that with Jack Lemmon as Pete Sheppard. Judy has a gift for capturing the childlike quality of the pure of heart "dumb blonde". It is oh so sad that we lost this comedic genius well before her time. But at least we have this treasure with Jack Lemmon at his comedic best opposite her. Add this all time comedic classic to your film library.
