Born Yesterday Review


Judy Holliday is known almost exclusively for her Best Actress-winning performance in Born Yesterday, where her mega-ditz Billie Dawn wisens up with the help of a reporter (William Holden) hired by her boor of a fiancee (Broderick Crawford). All are exceptionally well-suited to their parts. The film is slow to start but it quickly and quietly picks up steam, as Billie starts to move the chess pieces her tycoon boyfriend used to. Fun and funny, with some fabulous verbal sparring.
