Small Town Girl starring Jane Powell
Last nite I watched Jane Powell starring with Farley Granger in the 1950s musical Small Town Girl. It was just what the doctor ordered after a hellish day of work. Innocent, simpler times, where people hung out at the five and dime lunch counter and went to ice cream socials in the town square. No one wore sweatpants to the store. People dressed up. They drove great cars too. Farley is a wealthy spoiled man who gets a speeding ticket while driving recklessly through a small town. Jane's dad is the judge and he puts Farley in jail for 30 days. Hilarity and many songs and dances ensue. Will Farley get out of jail? Will he dump his fiancé, played by Ann Miller, and run off with Jane? The movie has great dresses, the women in the movie wore the best dresses ever, I was flipping out. Plus the colors were bright and vibrant, they don't make em like this anymore.
