Audience Member They even made a TV show with this flick in mind. It was called Margie & starred Cynthia Pepper as Margie. Lots of fun. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member The corn's a little high in this simple comedy but there is a sweetness too. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Typical teen movie, except for the student falling for her French teacher. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member great movie. fun to watch with daughter. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Much underrated Technicolor comedy with music showcases Jeanne Crain in the title role and captures the 1920's period flavor quite nicely; highly recommended.
