Susan Slept Here starring Debbie Reynolds

Last nite I watched the mid-1950s movie  "Susan Slept Here," starring Debbie Reynolds and Dick Powell. The plot was really stupid but the film had so much style!  Basically we have a 50 year old Powell playing a 35 year old (not believable, he looks 50), and a 22 year old Debbie playing a 17 year old (totally believable, she is adorable), and they fall in love. Talk about gross, ew, yuck. The film is innocent fun but this May-December romance is really taking things into the realm of the ridiculous, even for a fluff 50s movie.  Debbie's romantic rival for Powell is Anne Francis, who plays a spoiled wealthy starlet, She looks about 19 to be honest so even she is looking ridiculous chasing after Powell.  Anyhow, Powell lives in the most killer bachelor pad and Debbie wears the greatest dresses, her outfits are terrific. The colors in this movie really pop. Here are some scenes:

Awesome sports car!
