The "getup" in New York's get-up-and-go comes from the switchboard operators of Susanswerphone. Need a wake-up call? Your appointments? Encouragement from "Mom"? A racetrack bet? It all comes from that dutiful nerve -- or noive -- center that keeps enterprises enterprising and, maybe, wedding bells ringing. Judy Holliday reprises her Tony -winning Broadway role of irrepressible switchboard girl Ella in a jubilant adaptation that marked her final movie and the final teaming of movie-musical titans Arthur Freed and Vincente Minnelli. Dean Martin costars as a struggling playwright in for a surprise when he learns "Mom's" identity. The sparkling Jule Styne/Betty Comden/Adolph Green score includes Holliday's heartfelt "The Party's Over" and the jolly Holliday/Martin duet "Just in Time." You've dialed the right number, musical fans!
