The Reluctant Debutante 06/30/20

The Warner Archive Collection

Vincente Minnelli took time out from expensive MGM shows like Gigi to knock off this tale about the London debutante season, a light-comedy Cinderella story without satire or social comment. Young Sandra Dee and John Saxon come off well, but the show belongs to stars Rex Harrison and especially Kay Kendall, whose comedy timing and finesse lift the tame, weightless material. With Angela Lansbury and Diane Clare. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
