Description by OLDIES.com:
"Be sure the story is something you cannot resist," Richard Rodgers once advised Meredith Willson. After considering 100 projects for a successor to The Music Man
, Willson found one that was irresistible. And unsinkable.
Debbie Reynolds plays the title role, inviting all to "Belly Up to the Bar, Boys" for the whoop-and-holler film of Willson's 1960 Broadway hit. Reynolds received a 1964 Best Actress Oscar nomination as the backwoods heroine who survives the Titanic and the snobbery of Denver society. Screen-debuting Harve Presnell reprises his stage role of Johnny, who has heartful-and-a-half of love for Molly. Johnny wasn't alone. Astronauts Gus Grissom and John Young so admired the movie they named their Gemini 3 spacecraft Molly Brown.
