One of the most pleasant suprises in this film was how the stereotypical, good looking and 100% confident man the female main character has fallen in love with, is actually a really nice, sweet and caring guy instead of an asshole.
Yeah, so what? This idiot doesn’t even know it. Too dumb to know I’d do anything for him. And fuck the CIA, right? What have they ever done for me? Took ten years of my life, gave me shitty pay, put me in a basement with a ceiling full of bats. I would’ve been out a long time ago if it hadn’t been for Fine. So, yeah, I’ll do anything it takes to keep him alive. That’s pretty pathetic, right?
The Harvey Girls (1946).
On a train trip West to become a mail order bride Susan Bradley meets a cheery crew of young women traveling out to open a “ Harvey House ” restaurant at a remote whistle stop to provide good cooking and wholesome company for railway travellers. When Susan and her bashful suitor find romance daunting, Susan joins the Harvey Girls instead.
Judy Garland’s at her sweetheart best in this movie about a young woman conned by a player who finds solace and friendship with a group of women and then romance all over again with that player. It’s got great songs, a fun tempo and is genuinely a pretty damn charming film. 7/10.
