Editorial Reviews

A liberated female typist in the late 19th Century shocks staid Boston with her outspoken views on women’s rights. The luminous Betty Grable and lively Gershwin tunes make this an enjoyable, toe-tapping romp. Presented in 4:3 pan and scan using the highest quality source material available.

An atypical Betty Grable movie that allows her star to shine brightly, proving she was a far better actress than she gave herslef credit for.

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'm so incredibly happy that Fox has finally seen the light and has recognized the fact that there is a market for these films. Yes, they probably won't sell to the masses at Wal-mart but there are those of us who A) don't shop there and B) enjoy certain stars in just about any film they're in.

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.

Betty Grable is incomparable as a female suffragette, a modern-working woman who challenges the placid facades of Boston society when she falls in love with her wealthy, elitist employer. Love the way Betty does not flinch from confrontation with his snobbish family or his own caveman beliefs. Beautiful story. Now if they would just release Mother Wore Tights. Come on Fox get Betty's best (my favorite and her personal favorite on DVD too)!

This film gave Betty Grable the best opportunity to show her acting talent and a leading man that was a much better singer than most of her others. The film had a good story and costumes were relevant rather than an excuse to show off Betty's legs.

Betty Grable and Dick Haymes are delightful in this movie about women's sufferage! Featuring the wonderful singing of Dick Haymes and a little bit of dancing!

ONE OF GRABLE'S BEST. COLOR WAS BRIGHT. WHEN IT COMES TO WOMEN AND TODAY'S GLASS CIELING AND 77 CENTS ON THE DOLLAR, THIS FILM IS TIMELESS. GREAT SUPPORTING CAST AND NUANCED SITUATIONS AND DIALOGUE. DICK HAYMES AND GRABLE MAKE SURPRISINGLY GOOD CHEMSTRY (AS THEY DID IN "DIAMOND HORSESHOE", THE BLOND GRABLE (THO' SOMEWHAT DARKENED FROM HER USUAL PLATINUM) WITH A BLOND LEADING MAN, A NICE DEPARTURE FROM JOHN PAYNE, DON AMECHE, OR VICTOR MATURE, HER USUAL DARK-HAIRED LEADS. YOU'LL BE WARMED BY IT.

Very funnyand quite enjoyable. Silly premise and fun diversion from everyday life and a slip into the past. Betty Grable.
