Item Details

Dreamy and somewhat dizzy telephone operator Janie has a steady boyfriend, a real go-getter salesman named Tom, eagerly pursuing the American Dream. Then she gets--and accepts--three proposals of marriage in under a week! The first is from Tom, who lacks the romantic impulses Janie thinks she needs. The second is from millionaire playboy R.J. Hamilton, aka Dick, who inspires Cinderella fantasies of glamour and pageantry. But it's the third, from Harry, that causes the most trouble. Harry's an easy-going nonconformist auto mechanic with a romantic streak, snappy wit, and a kiss that inspires music. Can Janie find happiness with him? Full of both pin-up glamour and screwball comedy, especially in the cartoonish dream sequences, the film highlights Ginger Rogers' perfect combination of skepticism and daffiness.

Will Ginger Rogers choose the millionaire, the socialist, or the boy next door? With only her bizarre dream sequences to guide her, it's a toss up to the end.

In my opinion, Ginger Rogers is a better comedian than a dancer. And you know she is a very fine dancer indeed.

But, sometimes subtly and sometimes not-so, this movie is skewering the whole idea of that desire.
