This Edwards-Quine collaboration is a wheezy tale of a determined young girl (Austin) trying to get a break in Hollywood. Her reward is an appearance in a new Frankie Laine movie. Interesting mainly for the inside look at the bustling Columbia studio, and several songs from Laine and Daniels.
Blake Edwards, who co-wrote Rainbow ‘Round My Shoulder, went on to become the extraordinarily versatile director of such diverse films as Breakfast At Tiffany?s (1961), Days of Wine and Roses (1963), and The Pink Panther (1964).
