HASH(0xa6d97a98) out of 5 stars A DIFFERENT BUT WINNING BETTY GRABLE March 9 2013
By dagglebert - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0xa6d97ce4) out of 5 stars No dancing Betty in this one! Sept. 12 2013
By D. S. Wymore - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0xa6d97ca8) out of 5 stars Not Shocking... Right On Time Feb. 9 2014
By H. Fenton - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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)!

HASH(0xa6d97f9c) out of 5 stars Betty Grable at her best Oct. 2 2013
By Brian F Wright - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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!
