"...BORN YESTERDAY arrives with a credible modern resonance....Griffith provides her own credible spin on Billie Dawn....The film also gives Johnson his best role in a long time..."
After arriving in Washington D.C. and being embarrassed by a few awkward social situations, a millionaire hires a journalist to help polish his Las Vegas show-girl wife's manners and diction. Surprising everyone, she develops a mind (and opinions) of her own. A remake of the 1950 comedy.
Remake and updated version of the 1950 classic "Born Yesterday" directed by George Cukor and starring Judy Holliday, William Holden and Broderick Crawford. A dumb blond show girl becomes savvy to Washington DC political ways and becomes a liability to her unscrupulous real estate boyfriend, but an asset to the reporter assigned to do a story on him.
Shot in Technicolor on Eastman film on location in Washington, DC and Glendale and Los Angeles, California.
