i admit that this is the first judy holliday film i have ever saw and from her performance i'm sorry that entertainment lost her. i found that this movie had frank gorshin in it ke barton] so i had to see it! i loved how judy holliday portrayed ella, the way she sang and acted. my favorite song was the first one that she sang ["i'm in love with a man....."]. dean martin was his usual suave self and that gave the movie flare. it was wonderfully casted and the songs and story were so beautiful. if you're looking for a great movie beyond compare, this is it! definetly a classic that should not be forgotten!
