Ann Arden Grenville: Why do they call you Bratsie?
Bratsie Bleeker: Because I'm a spoiled brat, why else? Why are you called Ann?
Ann Arden Grenville: I wasn't. Well, I guess I better tell you, I was born Ursula Mertens. and it didn't fit on the billboard, and my agent changed it. You know, I'll bet it didn't matter to you what you were called.
Bratsie Bleeker: Still doesn't.

Claudette Colbert, a star to end all stars!
7 April 1999 | by Pat-54See all my reviews

Claudette Colbert is the only reason to watch this made for television movie. She looks fabulous and steals every scene she is in. Ann-Margaret, on the other hand, is miscast and chews the scenery up with her hysterics!
