Judy Holliday shines in this sweet comedy about a struggling actress who buys billboard space to put her name in lights. JH is pitch-perfect as an innocent and completely guile-less young woman who manages to take everything in her stride simply by being herself. There is absolutely no irony, or hipness or anything scheming about her. And the great thing is that things go her way - this is not the story of some sweet person getting one-upped by life. No, JH goes about life with her almost child-like honesty and manages to, without really trying, charm everyone in her way.

The movie is quite unlike anything I have ever seen: entertaining and funny (watch the scene where Peter Lawford's playboy tries to seduce a bemused Judy Holliday) and with a genuinely sweet core.

Garson Kanin wrote the script and George Cukor directed - great. The film also has subtitles which is a plus, even though the sound is excellent.

It should happen to you! I bought this after watching Adam's Rib and Born Yesterday. I loved it. I love Judy's sense of comedy. It was also great to see Jack Lemmon in one of his early roles, as the only other movie I have so far seen him in is Some Like It Hot. A really great movie !

While hardly in the 'Born Yesterday' or 'Marrying Kind' category of cinematic excellence, 'It Should Happen to You' is still marvellous fun. Garson Kanin wrote the script which is always reassuring, but it is so fluffy that it is almost nonexistent. Wonderfully naive, eternally hopeful and delightfully vivacious Judy Holliday is the luckless model who rents an enormous billboard space at Columbus Circle on Manhattan to advertise her name. A satire about the need to be famous for fame's own sake, a diagnosis for an illness which is all to wellknown in this age of reality shows, but it doesn't really go anywhere in the context of the film. Lemmon delivers a rather shaky debut performance, and Lawford is his usual charming, lascivious self.
Buy it for Holliday though. Anyone in his right mind would.

quite a unique film and Judy Hplliday is the star once more as she was in 'Born Yesterday' and she has a surprisingly melodic voice when duetting with Jack Lemmon in his first co starring role as Judie's boyfriend. Terrific entertainment and I can see Judy paved the way for Marilyn Monroe's great seemingly dumb blonde rolls but really not all she seems, but in Marilyn's case there was that unique sexiness that appealed to men AND women.
