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
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.

Say, if you care to give me your address, I could drop you a postcard and fix it up for you to see this picture when it gets done.
I'd give my right arm to see myself in the movies.
You don't have to give me your right arm. Just give me your right address.
262 West 61st Street, Room 9.
Well, so long Gladys.
[Extends her hand but instead of him shaking it, Pete kisses it impulsively. She looks taken aback]
I saw a fella do that in a French movie last week. I've been meaning to try it ever since.

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.
