This movie was a lovely surprise. Judy Holliday plays dim girlfriend to an "old-school" businessman who uses muscle over brains. Broderick Crawford plays her boyfriend and patron; he determines his girlfriend's lack of class and education is hurting his business prospects. He hires William Holden to educate her. Holliday and Holden form a beautiful friendship through their studies. The film is very funny and I am so glad I came across it. Holliday won an Oscar for her brilliant performance.
