Confidentially Connie

An expectant mother hatches a series of madcap schemes to improve her husband's financial standing in the 1953 MGM comedy Confidentially Connie starring Janet Leigh and Van Johnson.

In her autobiography, There Really Was a Hollywood, Leigh wrote "in my new Judy Holiday-style hairdo, I was reunited with Van Johnson in a fetching little comedy, Confidentially Connie. In the six years since The Romance of Rosy Ridge he hadn't changed one adorable freckle, or one endearing quality. He was a father now, of a daughter, Schuyler." Leigh also added, "I loved working with Van and had another opportunity in 1962 on Wives and Lovers.

Although Confidentially Connie was a minor film for both Leigh and Johnson, it was well received by critics and audiences alike with Variety calling it "an entertaining, spritely comedy," and also commenting "The dialog is good, the situations amusing...Miss Leigh and Johnson team excellently."
