Wonderful, perfect romp with Judy Holliday doing what she does best...make us laugh, cry and fall in love with her and her characters.
Her acting in Solid Gold is as perfect as can be. The script and wonderful character actors, Paul Douglas, Fred Clark, Paul Collins and Neva Patterson, who support her, do their very best to bring this whimsical story to life.
Judy may not be a household name to most - but to me, she will be one of the inextinguishable shining angels in the celluloid firmament.
Her legacy will live on as long as we want to laugh at ourselves.
This movie is a must-see comedy if you like to feel good.
