Judy Holliday won the coveted 1950 Best Actress Oscar in this adaptation of Garson Kanin’s Broadway hit. Brash ex-chorus girl Billie Dawn (Holliday) travels to Washington, D.C., with her domineering junk tycoon boyfriend Harry Brock (Broderick Crawford). When Brock decides Billie needs etiquette lessons in the tight-laced capital, he enlists the help of Paul Verrall (William Holden in a star-making turn), a newsman secretly planning to expose Brock’s misdealings— and unexpectedly falling in love with Billie. (35mm presentation)
