Description

The get-up in New York's get-up-and-go comes from the switchboard operators of Susanswerphone. Need a wakeup call? Your appointments? Encouragement from "Mom?" A racetrack bet? It all comes from that dutiful nerve - or noive - center that keeps enterprises enterprising and, maybe, wedding bells ringing. Judy Holliday reprises her Tony-winning Broadway role of irrepressible switchboard girl Ella in a jubilant adaptation that marked her final movie and the final teaming of movie-musical titans Arthur Freed and Vincente Minnelli. Dean Martin co-stars as a struggling playwright in for a surprise when he learns "Mom's" identity. The sparkling Jule Styne/Betty Comden/Adolph Green score includes Holliday's heartfelt The Party's Over and the jolly Holliday/Martin duet Just in Time. You've dialed the right number, musical fans!
