Directed by George Cukor

Judy Holliday, William Holden


Judy Holliday won an Oscar for her performance as Billie Dawn, the brassy show-girl a journalist (Played by William Holden) seeks to educate into some form of respectability.

Fearing Billie is too uneducated for the DC set, Brock hires journalist Paul Verrall to add some polish -- but Billie proves to be much smarter than anyone expected.
