Susan Slept Here (IB Tech Print)

In Frank Tashlin’s hilarious battle of the sexes, a Hollywood screenwriter (Dick Powell) suffering from writer’s block gets an unexpected gift when the cops leave a rambunctious 17-year-old delinquent (Debbie Reynolds) in his care on Christmas Eve. While the unexpected arrangement could prove inspiration for his next script, it doesn’t sit well with his long-time fiancé (Ann Francis). Nominated for 2 Academy Awards!

“Some of the gags about 50s Hollywood are priceless” – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
