Movie Info

After two years of failing to make it big in New York City, small-town model and actress Gladys Glover (Judy Holliday) takes a gamble by investing in billboard advertising to get her name out there. Almost immediately her risk pays off, and she finds herself inundated with media requests and fans, including the affections of the wealthy Evan Adams III (Peter Lawford) of the Adams Soap company. While Glover enjoys the spotlight, her boyfriend (Jack Lemmon) is less pleased about it.

Audience Reviews for It Should Happen to You

  • Jan 29, 2021
    This is a sweet romcom from the 1950s, it's stars exuding charm throughout, all about the delectable lure of seeking personal fame. It's a subject interestingly that has only grown in the social spectrum in the time since this movie was first released, particularly in the internet age. Whatever, this is just a nice film experience.

    Judy Holliday's comic timing is impeccable. She owns this film. It's Jack Lemmon's first role as a leading man.

    Brilliantly directed by Cukor, and brilliantly acted by the great cast. This movie is hilarious, and a lot of fun. I highly recommend it.

    Lovely comedy with some sharp observations. Judy is radiant and Jack's debut performance is a gem.
