    Judy Holliday is a one of a kind actress, and it's a shame she didn't make more films. There is no one else quite like her. She is always such a delight and so genuine. This movie is a fine addition to her resume, fun, with a unique story and it's very well handled. It works, thanks to Judy and a great first role for Jack Lemmon. Excellent George Cukor direction.

    Move over, Paris. Meet Gladys Glover.Judy Holliday is Gladys Glover - an aspiring actress and model who has not had much luck "making a name" for herself in the Big Apple. She is on the verge of giving up her dream when a chance enounter with budding filmmaker Pete Sheppard (Lemmon) encourages her to take charge of her own fate. While passing through busy Columbus Circle one day, Gladys notices a billboard for rent and gets the idea to have her name plastered across it. Fortunately for Gladys, a mix-up with the billboard's intended advertiser - soap company playboy Peter Lawford - lands her with not one, but 6 signs around the city.Soon Gladys is recognized everywhere - simply for having her name on a sign, and she soaks up every bit of her new-found (and perhaps ill-placed) fame. Having fallen in love with the unknown (and simpler) Gladys, Pete (as Lemmon's usual lovesick but lovable dope) can't get her to understand that it is better to be a nobody who accomplishes something satisfying than to be a fabricated somebody who is famous simply for being, well... famous.Although this film definitely deserves a revival in its own right, it is most likely now receiving the constant replay because of culture's current obsession with celebrities who are (in)famous merely due to their celebrity names. Nevertheless, it is essential classic movie viewing as Jack and Judy are a romantic-comedy duo with an enormous chemistry more obvious than even Gladys's gigantic sign.
