365 Movies: Kitty Review

Kitty stars Paulette Goddard, Ray Milland, Patric Knowles, Reginald Owen, and Cecil Kellaway in this 1945 Mitchell Leisen film. The film is about a poor girl named Kitty(Goddard), who attracts the attention of a painter. Feeling inspired by her, he begins to paint a portrait of her, when two of his companions interrupt him. The two men fall immediately under her spell, not knowing at all, she's just a poor nobody. Wanting to find out more about her, Sir Hugh Marcy(Milland) decides to wait for her outside, where after a three hour wait, discovers that she's a girl from the slumps. At first, he's annoyed but picks upon it, to transform for, into a lady. This is very much like "My Fair Lady", but this is so much better. The storyline, the acting, the costumes..... everything about this film was perfect! Paulette was saucy and charming and it was thrilling to see her, as the star of the film. Ray was magnetic and very charismatic. With a small role, I still adored seeing Patric. It's a sweet, fun, and romantic film, that'll keep you wanting more, even after the film is done.
