The Pink Fuzzy Nightgown
Jane Russell ■ Keenan Wynn ■ Ralph Meeker
Laurel Srevens (Jane Russell), a movie star is kidnapped by a pair of amateurs, Mike Valla (Ralph Meeker) and "Dandy" (Keenan Wynn). But their hearts aren't really into their work and they decide to let her go. Laurel, worried abut the effect a phoney kidnapping will have on her career, tells them they've got to go through with it for real. She points out that in the past, she's been a party to number of outrageous publicity stunts and, because they abducted her on the eve of the release of her new film, "The Kidnapped Bride," she tells them her career will collapse unless they make the kidnapping look like it was on the level.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect the first time I saw this movie. My only other experiences with Jane Russell were watching her in Macao and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Keenan Wynn I knew from supporting roles in quite a few movies.
Turned out to be a pretty good movie!
All of the characters learn a lesson or two - and all with humor and romance.
Jane Russell ... Laurel Stevens
Keenan Wynn ... Dandy
Ralph Meeker ... Mike Valla
Fred Clark ... Police Sergeant McBride
Una Merkel ... Bertha
Benay Venuta ... Daisy Parker
Robert Harris ... Barney Baylies (as Robert H. Harris)
Mike: There's a lock on the phone.
Laurel: You're so smart.
Mike: No, you're just kind of dumb.
Mike: What do you want me to do now, pant or applaud?
Laurel: Drop dead!
Laurel: What do you mean $50,000? You're not asking some two-bit ransom for me!
Laurel: I wind up an accessory to my own kidnapping and this is the thanks I get.
Many gossip columns reported that Dean Martin was to be cast in the role of Mike, however for some reason, the role went to Ray Danton, then finally to Ralph Meeker.
