Ella Peterson is a Brooklyn telephone answering service operator who tries to improve the lives of her clients by passing along bits of information she hears from other clients. She falls in love with one of her clients, the playwright Jeffrey Moss, and is determined to meet him. The trouble is, on the phone to him, she always pretends to be an old woman whom he calls "Mom."

Jeffrey Moss's phone was the brand new Princess model, just introduced by the Bell System in 1959, the same year this movie was filmed. See more »
As Jeffrey Moss changes the paper as he works on the outline for "The Midas Touch," the carbon paper between the blank sheets is shiny-side up. This would give him a mirror image on the back side of the first sheet instead of an original and a copy, which as an experienced typist, he would surely know. See more »

In contrast to the guy who wrote the comment on the main page in this board, I saw this movie and I really enjoyed it. I had never seen a Judy Holliday movie before and I was totally taken in by her charm and good acting. Dean Martin (a favorite of mine) showed his usual suave personality and I thought he was perfect for the role. The songs and the choreography are excellent. I just love the mood of this movie and its message of healthy humanism, whether or not it's something I really believe in. I like the scene where Judy and Dean say hello and introduce themselves to the man on the street. Also of note is Minnelli's smart direction. One of the best musicals of the 60s, sadly one of the last.
