The Opposite Sex (1956)

Directed by
David Miller

David Miller's sparky musical, a remake of George Cukor's The Women, stars June Allyson as Kay Hilliard, a former nightclub singer now married to Broadway producer Steve Hilliard. When she hears through the theatrical gossip grapevine that he's dallying with singer Crystal Allen, her first thought is of divorce. Then she realises she's still got what it takes to take on Crystal at her own game and win her husband back by being just as foxy. Musical highlights include Young Man with a Horn and A Perfect Love, both sung by Allyson.
