Little Nellie Kelly by Prod Co: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/Loew's Incorporated( Visual )

7 editions published between 1940 and 2011 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this whimsical bit o' blarney from George M. Cohan's 1922 hit, Judy Garland plays dual roles: plucky Irish colleen Nellie (Judy's first grownup part) and her daughter, Little Nellie. Both Nellies contend with the same cantankerous coot, the laze-about father (Charles Winninger) who fusses mightily when Nellie marries an upstanding lad (George Murphy) and repeats the process years later when Little Nellie falls in love. Radiant and winning, Garland sings "It's a great day for the Irish", "Singin' in the rain" and more classic tunes. But the film's finest moment may be the heartrending hospital scene in which Garland's touching, emotionally subtle performance gives promise of the superb dramatic actress she would become

Dreamy and somewhat dizzy telephone operator Janie has a steady boyfriend, a real go-getter salesman named Tom, eagerly pursuing the American Dream. Then she gets--and accepts--three proposals of marriage in under a week! The first is from Tom, who lacks the romantic impulses Janie thinks she needs. The second is from millionaire playboy R.J. Hamilton, aka Dick, who inspires Cinderella fantasies of glamour and pageantry. But it's the third, from Harry, that causes the most trouble. Harry's an easy-going nonconformist auto mechanic with a romantic streak, snappy wit, and a kiss that inspires music. Can Janie find happiness with him? Full of both pin-up glamour and screwball comedy, especially in the cartoonish dream sequences, the film highlights Ginger Rogers' perfect combination of skepticism and daffiness
