To help his divorced neighbor claim a substantial inheritance, a family man poses as her husband. The ruse spills over into his career in advertising, and his recent promotion relies on his wholesome and moral appearance.
In post-WW2 France, U.S. Army hospital private Hogan and Captain Locke try to outwit one another on issues such as wooing pretty nurses, accounting for missing medical supplies, organizing unauthorized dances and influencing their C.O.
Ruth and her beautiful sister Eileen come to New York's Greenwich Village looking for "fame, fortune and a 'For Rent' sign on Barrow Street". They find an apartment (such as it is!), but fame and fortune are a lot more elusive. Ruth gets the attention of playboy publisher Bob Baker when she submits a story about her gorgeous sister Eileen. She tries to keep his attention by convincing him that she, (a "spinsterish old-maid writer") and the gorgeous, man-getting Eileen are one and the same person.Written by
This delightful and unpretentious musical version of the Rosalind Russell movie is NOT a movie adaptation of Russell's famous Broadway musical "Wonderful Town" but an original movie musical that in my opinion is better than "Wonderful Town." It features Bob Fosse in a supporting role and also --and more importantly--his first choreographic achievement, and an excellent one to boot. Another added plus is a terrific performance as actress, singer, and dancer from Janet Leigh. And it features great turns by Betty Garrett and (singing!) Jack Lemmon. Don't miss this one.
