The great director Vincent Minnelli (Gigi, American in Paris & Meet Me in St. Louis) does an outstanding job presenting us with the 50's comedy "Designing Woman". Lauren Bacall is gorgeous in the lead and with a rare comedic performance gives us a great movie. Her leading man Gregory Peck also in a rare comedic role pulls it off masterfully under the direction of Minnelli.
This Warner Brothers DVD is very nicely done. The movie & color quality is outstanding and the WideScreen presentation fills the screen with the stars personalities. DVD Extras include a Trailer & behind-the-scenes mini documentary featuring the Costume Designer Helen Rose.
Summary: New York High Society Designing Woman (Bacall - is outstanding) meets a New York Newspaper Sports Writer (Gregory Peck - a nice change & he was delightful) at the Beverly Hills Hotel, California while on their respective assignments. After a shakey start, fall madly in love and in a few days marry.
As they return to the "Big Apple" the real adventure begins. The original Odd Couple now realize they both had separate lives and different committments. How they deal with the transition is real Hollywood humor and with the philosophy of the 1950's there must be a happy ending after they pay their dues. A Great movie!!
A very nice movie showing us the Hollywood and the Big stars we know & love to see. Enjoy.

In this film, Lauren Bacall hilariously portrays the quintessential high-society, high-fashion New Yorker. While on a trip to Beverly Hills, she meets and spontaneously marries the wonderful Gregory Peck - an unassuming sports writer who has no idea exactly what he's married into. Upon their return to New York, Peck's character discovers he's married the darling of New York society as his wife is a renowned designer (think Edith Head or Helen Rose). What ensues is hilarious encounters between her society coterie and his down-home group of blue-collar writers, setting up perfectly for the witty repartee between Bacall and Peck that defines the movie. The film culminates in a fashion show-boxing rumble, once again intersecting the seemingly divergent lives of Bacall and Peck.
"Designing Woman" is a wonderful movie that gives ample opportunity for the magnificent Gregory Peck to show off his comedic skills, however subtly. I saw this film after "Roman Holiday" and it cemented my image of Peck as a dashing and charming leading man who brings out the comedic best in his leading ladies. The chemistry between Bacall and Peck is evident throughout the movie and is a testament to the adage "Opposites do attract."
This is a complete, well-told story with a solid set of supporting characters. This movie is for all those people looking for that rare superb romantic comedy. The delightful depiction of New York society makes us nostalgic for the days before the Hilton sisters.

I love Gregory Peck. I love him as the serious, morally righteous attorney, the dashing naval captain, you name it. So, really, I should have known that he could pull off a comedic role as well. No one, I don't think, could have known how well he'd pull it off.
From his first hilarious hangover to the last "cross-eyed" fight scene, Peck is enchanting. He's completely believable in his role as a sports writer caught up in a new world of dresses and strange choreographers intruding on his poker night. And perhaps it's because he's not known as a comedic actor that he's all the more funny.
Designing Woman seems to be a little known film, but I'm certainly glad I found it because it kept me laughing, which brought others into the room to watch it with me. Now I just wish that Peck had made more movies like this.

I'd never heard of this movie, but gave it a try because of Gregory Peck. I was absolutely delighted by this sweet, charming, entertaining movie filled with funny situations, amusing characters and great stylish '50s clothes. And Gregory Peck looks his best.

Bacall and Peck are two careerists from two different planets....fashion and sports. They've got undeniable chemistry on screen. The story showcases the sexy and hilarious interplay between two ADULTS navigating each other's foreign terrain and trying to make it all work. This movie has been an iconic favorite of mine since I first saw it as a teenager because of Gregory Peck's comedic acting and Bacall's exquisite wardrobe created by Hollywood designer Helen Rose. Her costumes showcase what a LADY at the top of her game looks like! Check out a mink coat Bacall wears to a pro fight...none of you have ever seen a mink or is it sable...styled like this. And the scene is unforgettable!
Helen Rose runs neck and neck with Edith Head in her mastery of Hollywood costuming. After the fashionistas see this film they'll want to know a lot more about Helen Rose and maybe think about how much we all lost when America adopted the androgynous gear of jeans, indecent minis and sweats! This movie is a pro's master class about what true "chic" is all about and how a woman, not a girl, carries it off. For the rest of you the film's a great way to spend two hours watching another master, Vincent Minnelli ply his trade. You're in for a good time.
