Starring Judy Holliday, Paul Douglas, Fred Clark
Judy Holliday takes on capitalist corruption in this spirited comedy adapted from the hit Broadway play by George S. Kaufman and Howard Teichmann. During a shareholder meeting of the International Projects Corporation, small stockholder Laura Partridge (Judy Holliday) so embarrasses the board of directors with her probing questions that they put her on the payroll in hopes of buying her silence. The plan soon backfires, however, as Laura enlists a powerful ally—the company’s resolutely honest founder (Paul Douglas)—in her crusade to oust the crooked board.
