George Cukor was born to a Hungarian Jewish immigrant family on the Lower East Side of New York City. He developed a love of theater as a child, taking dance lessons, appearing in amateur productions, and even cutting classes to see shows on Broadway. He graduated from De Witt Clinton High School in 1917, and went to work in the theater, rising from production assistant to stage manager to director.
Movies were becoming popular and by 1929, Cukor was invited to work in Hollywood. His first major project there was as a dialogue director for All Quiet on the Western Front (1930). He landed a few co-directing jobs as well, including The Royal Family of Broadway (1930). He made his directorial debut with Tallulah Bankhead's film debut, Tarnished Lady (1931), and helped discover Katharine Hepburn -- he fought with the RKO Studio to cast her in A Bill of Divorcement (1932). He had his first major success as a director working with Hepburn again in Little Women (1933). He went on to direct some of Hollywood's biggest stars, including Greta Garbo in Camille (1936). He worked with Hepburn and Cary Grant on The Philadelphia Story (1940) and made several sophisticated comedies. He suffered a career setback by being fired by David O. Selznick from the production of Gone with the Wind in 1939, but made successful films for many more years. He was particularly known for adaptations of books and stage plays for the screen; many of them centered on strong female characters. He received an Academy Award for My Fair Lady (1964).

A (Great).

A woman who wants to be famous rents a billboard. Both Judy Holliday and Jack Lemmon do something unexpectedly funny with pretty much every line.

A surprisingly enjoyable, well-paced and amusing film with Marilyn Monroe as a showgirl, and Yves Montand as an arrogant billionaire. There's a comedy of errors which we thought very well done.

While there's nothing explicit or any bad language, the theme isn't appropriate to children despite the U rating. But with that proviso, I would recommend this to anyone who likes 1960s films with their slightly over-the-top acting.

2023 movie #113. 1952. Pat (Hepburn) an up and coming woman athlete is discovered by Mike (Tracy), an unscrupulous sports agent. Hepburn, who really was a good athlete, performed the tennis and golfing shown in the movie.
