Millie moved to New York with a plan. She was going to interview a list of potential bosses, accept employment with the most promising specimen and marry him. Love was not meant to be an issue. Things didn't go entirely to plan however. Her chosen boss, Mr Graydon, called her John and found her jolly efficient but not attractive. The man who did find her attractive, Jimmy, appeared to be a hopeless waster with no interesting prospects. Still, Millie was pretty smitten with Jimmy. He was a great dancer and made every moment an adventure. So she was quite straight with him and told him of her plans, pointed out that she was his equal and intended to meet men on their own terms, learn to talk sports, tell jokes, smoke, drink and (if she really had to) even kiss them back. After all it wasn't the middle ages, it was 1922! Meanwhile, there was shady criminal activity taking place in the hotel for single young ladies where Millie was living. Those young ladies who seemed to be lonely orphans, kept mysteriously leaving the hotel without a word of explanation or farewell to any of their friends. The final disappearance, of Miss Dorothy, finally rang alarm bells so Millie, Jimmy and Mr Graydon (who had fallen in love with Miss Dorothy at first sight) became sleuths and launched a dramatic and heroic rescue operation. It's all a lot more complicated than that really - but you get the idea.
It's a fantastic film. Fabulous costumes, music, songs, dancing and acting. Good story: sweet, funny, touching. Likely to be watched again and again. Bound to cheer you up if ever you're feeling blue. I recommend it.
