Synopsis:
Judy Holliday gives an unforgettable, Oscar-winning performance as Billie Dawn, the 'dumb blonde' girlfriend of corrupt millionaire junkyard tycoon Harry Brock (Broderick Crawford). A man with social ambitions, Harry is embarrassed by Billie's uncouth behaviour and lack of social refinement, so he sends her on a crash course in culture with young journalist Paul Verrall (William Holden). Billie proves to be an able student in lessons of life and love, whilst also becoming all too aware of her partner's crooked business dealings. Emboldened by her new education, she stands up to Harry and his bad ways.
