Kim Novak swing

“What good is it only being pretty?” a 19-year-old girl asks her mother in “Picnic.” “I get tired of only being looked at.” To which her mother can only reply, “What a question!” In Kansas of 1955, being a pretty girl was pretty much a lifestyle in itself, and when Marge (Kim Novak) is crowned Queen of Neewollah (that’s Halloween spelled backward), all she can do is clutch the bouquet of roses and promise not to get too conceited. Roger Ebert | October 25, 1996.
