Eadie Was a Lady. 1945. USA. Directed by Arthur Dreifuss. 67 min.
Screenplay by Monte Brice. With Ann Miller, Joe Besser, William Wright, Jeff Donnell, Jimmy Little, Tommy Dugan, Marion Martin, Jack Cole. In this amiable Columbia B musical, society girl Ann Miller escapes her Back Bay family by performing in the chorus line in a burlesque house. But trouble starts when her boss (William Wright) decides to build her up as a star. One of the many bread-and-butter Columbia productions graced by the contributions of Cole’s in-house dance studio. Cole dances behind Miller in “I’m Gonna See My Baby.”
