Somebody Loves Me (1952)

Director:

Irving Brecher

Writer:

Irving Brecher

Stars:

Betty Hutton, Ralph Meeker, Robert Keith, Adele Jergens, Billie Bird, Henry Slate, Jack Benny
 
Written and directed by Irving Brecher, best known for his weekly TV series Life of Riley and The People's Choice, Somebody Loves Me is the highly fictionalized life story of vaudeville and Broadway star Blossom Seeley (Betty Hutton) and her husband-partner Benny Fields (Ralph Meeker). Unflatteringly, the film depicts Fields as something of an opportunist, who maneuvers Blossom into marriage for the benefit of his own career. Eventually he does penance for his callousness, particularly in a scene wherein Fields is reduced to playing straight for a pair of crummy Burlesque comedians. Meanwhile, Blossom also goes into an eclipse as a "single." The tearful finale is, like the rest of the film, a bit at odds with the truth, but effective nonetheless. Betty Hutton does pretty well as Seeley, even though she looks and sounds nothing like genuine article; Meeker seems uncomfortable, except when lip-synching to the prerecorded voice of Pat Morgan as Benny Fields. Jack Benny makes an amusing cameo appearance.

  1. Betty Hutton Shines 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 13th 2018

    Really enjoyed this movie because of Betty Hutton's performing! She does lots of singing and dancing and is just terrific. The story is a loose biography of Blossom Seely and focuses on her situations with her future husband.The actor who plays her husband was pretty bland which detracts from the story but I didn't mind since there were all the great performances by Betty. DVD is good condition as well.
