A Broadway triumph-turned-1950 Academy Award-nominated film Born Yesterday is a deliciously witty screwball comedy about a corrupt businessman trying to get ahead.
Harry Brock, a junk-dealer millionaire on the rise, hunkers down in a lavishly decorated hotel room in Washington with his brassy chorus girl girlfriend Billie Dawn in tow. Hoping to influence a senator in some personal business dealings, he soon gets advice suggesting that the seemingly dim-witted blonde will need a little polish to get ahead in D.C. society.
Brock hires a newspaperman for the task but gets more than he bargained for when, in a deliriously funny and romantic turn of events, he discovers a little bit of learning can be a dangerous thing. Don’t miss this sharp-witted crooked comedy — a swell escape for family and friends this holiday season!
