Makes it seem worth watching, at least.

Is that supposed to be Cyd Charisse?

Try again

It is, but I think they were trying to present that ethereal pair of legs without making it seem as though Party Girl was some kind of Musical.

Even five years before this, MGM wouldn't have minded such confusion, but their Musical output (Gigi being a major exception) hadn't been faring too well at the box office of late.

Well, it's NOT a musical (although Cyd does some half-hearted steps, and I love the swingy title song performed by Mr. Charisse, Tony Martin.)

I keep reading the title as MADCHEN AUS DER UNDERWEAR. Am I regressing to kindergarten?

Freudian Slip.

Looks more like Susan Hayward.
