Story Analysis & Ratings:

Lucy says: 2 Pops ~ An excellent example of how preaching about issues can ruin a perfectly good story. Judy Holliday was lovely and charming and earned that Oscar, but the movie didn’t quite make it. Lucy’s rating breakdown: Structure: 3, Comedy: 1, Romance: 2

Jenny says: 2 Pops ~ If you want to send a message, call Western Union. Or use e-mail. Anything but your story. Jenny’s rating breakdown: Structure: 3, Comedy: 2 (for Judy, otherwise 1), Romance: 1

Blog Poll Rating: TBD
