Loved it! I think this movie should be required viewing for every politician today. I was not expecting much, thinking it was another Pymaglion remake, but I think because of the setting of the story, I really enjoyed it. I think the lesson that “knowledge is power” resonates well even today, making it a classic in my opinion.

Having recently seen William Holden in Front Row Center Sunset Boulevard — where I found him slightly attractive — I can confirm that he was definitely attractive, as was Judy Holliday, except for her voice, which I kept waiting to change, as her etiquette lessons began to take hold. No such luck.
