Actresses of the 50s and 60s

Dany Saval, Suzanna Leigh, Christiane Schmidtmer, Jerry Lewis, Tony Curtis

NOW hear this. In “Boeing, Boeing,” his new co-starring comedy with Tony Curtis, Jerry Lewis is so subdued he’s hardly recognizable. No kidding, and we can all take it as a Christmas present. The ladies are luscious. Dany Saval, from France, is the cute one. England’s Suzanna Leigh is the dove. And Christiane Schmidtmer, from Germany, is the chesty wonder. But it’s that Brooklyn buzzsaw, good old Thelma Ritter, who steals the picture—what there is of it. NY Times.

  1. gotta see this one!

    • It’s actually not very good, despite the talent. It was a very successful play on Broadway and the West End, and the studio scenes ar a bit stagey, and the external scenes a bit redundant. Thelma Ritter definetly steals the movie. The three young women are good, so too Jerry Lewis. But I didn’t find Tony Curtis funny, only annoying and a sleazeball.
