Film Series: Born Yesterday

1950. USA. Dir: George Cukor. With Judy Holiday, William Holden. 103 min.


Among the most gifted (and still relatively unsung) sound-era comediennes, Holliday broke out with this reprise of her hit Broadway role, winning the Best Actress Oscar in the process. She brings impeccable comic timing and depth of expression as a seemingly ditzy blonde who gets an education and turns the tables on the crooked lobbyist she’s dating.
