It Should Happen to You

Time Out saysOne of Judy Holliday's delicious dumb blonde performances as the nobody despairing of being somebody who makes it by splashing her savings on splashing her name across a billboard in Manhattan. Garson Kanin's script doesn't really bite hard enough in its satire of TV and its eager promotion of the nonentity celebrity, nor - after a wonderful opening - does the comedy have anywhere much to go. Bright moments and irresistible performances, though, with Lemmon (in his debut) making a superb foil for Holliday as the solemn documentary film-maker who observes, loves and is baffled by her.
