It Should Happen To You, 1954 comedy starring Judy Holliday, Jack Lemmon and Peter Lawford

Gladys Glover (played by Judy Holliday) is desperate for fame but since moving to New York City, nothing has happened.

Then, she randomly spots a billboard for rent and decides to take a chance and hires it for a period of time with ‘Gladys Glover’ written on it.

People begin to wonder who Gladys Glover is and in spite of being a nobody and doing nothing, she suddenly becomes famous.

She promotes products, ends up on television and everyone wants a piece of the action.

Although she’s a dumb blonde – and Judy Holliday plays the part extremely well – she’s still aware that with two men chasing her, only one is genuine.

So, farewell Evan Adams III (Peter Lawford) and hello Pete Sheppard (Jack Lemmon).

Released in 1954, it’s a very good film and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
