Movie Info

Two small-town sisters -- an aspiring writer, Ruth (Betty Garrett), and a would-be actress, Eileen (Janet Leigh) -- move to New York City. They find lodging in a shabby apartment and struggle to locate promising gigs. Ruth eventually meets magazine editor Bob Baker (Jack Lemmon), who tells her to write about her life experiences rather than fiction. As it turns out, Eileen's life, with her various romantic encounters, is far more interesting, so Ruth steals the stories for herself.

Audience Reviews for My Sister Eileen

  • Jan 22, 2012
    A lightweight musical w/o much of a plot (2 small town women try to make it in New Yawk) but still interesting for a coupla reasons. One is the performance of Mr. Bob Fosse. He does sincere engagingly well. Then there's a song by Lemmon at which he fails, but he goes down gallantly fighting. And there's Janet Leigh trying the musical/dance genre. Whoda thunk it? These and more make this interesting while still not altogether entertaining.

    I know it's a remake, but it's got Jack Lemmon, and he's really funny in this movie. I want to see the original now.

    Bland average musical, Betty Garrett is good as is Jack although he shouldn't have sung. Some of the dances are fine some blah. Worth a view but only one.
