Fox darkened her hair and sent her legs into hiding, apart from a couple of brief flashes of ankle, resulting in an excellent performance from her as Boston's first female typewriter (typist), who becomes a women's suffrage leader and convinces the man she loves that women are equal, too.
A lively supporting cast, including Anne Revere, Gene Lockhart and Allyn Joslyn, assists Grable in making this one fun to watch.
I understand at the time this film was released, the critics and audiences were disappointed that Betty Grable was in a long skirt (no famous gams to be seen) and didn't dance. There are no production numbers, either. Her leading man, Dick Haymes, was a crooner, not a dancer and the storyline doesn't really leave room for any dancing.
The story revolves around the women's suffrage movement in the 1870s. When Betty takes a job as a typist in an office, Boston is set on it's ear at the thought of a women doing a man's job. Consequently, Betty charms everyone and proves that she is very capable in all she does in the office, proving that women can work outside of the home.
The songs by the Gershwins are not as famous as most of their other material. "As if I Didn't Have Enough on my Mind" is the stand out.
As with all of the DVDs in the Fox Cinema Archives series - this is strictly bare bones: no chapters, no trailers, no commentaries, no inserts - just the movie.
