Pretty Baby DVD
Audie Murphy, World War II's most-decorated GI, portrays an Old West detective who purposely lands behind bars so he can infiltrate a secret gang with a vicious MO: spring prisoners from their cells, force them to be front men for notorious crimes, then kill them to collect the reward money for their dead-or-alive capture. DeForest Kelley, in one of his many Westerns before he became Dr. McCoy in the original Star Trek, plays an outlaw leader. He'll be dishing out lead in the gunfight finale that gives the film its title.

Comments about this product:
This is my third try to write a review for "Pretty Baby". This movie is a 1950 comedy starring Betsy Drake; costars are Edmund Gwenn, Dennis Morgan and Zachary Scott. TCM keeps losing my reviews. If this one gets lost, I guess it is three strikes!
TCM has an Audie Murphy western film description for "Pretty Baby". Plus a bunch of actors that are NOT in this movie. Maybe mixing up movies, TCM is lost too!
To clear up what this movie is about, I will give my DVD description below.
Patsy Douglas can't get s seat on the subway until she takes home the doll her ad agency is using for the Baxter Baby Food account. Then everyone makes way for the young "mother", including a mean old frozen-face named Cyrus Baxter who melts when he learns the little one is named for him. Patsy gets a promotion at the agency, the attentions of two handsome ad men and a rosy future - as long as Cyrus never learns there's a reason her bundle of joy is such a quiet baby! Betsy Drake and "Miracle on 34th Street" Academy Award winner Edmund Gwenn are Patsy and Cyrus. Dennis Morgan and Zachary Scott are the smitten ad execs in a comedy that celebrates love, marriage and motherhood. Just not in that order.
Scenes that I liked in this movie are below.
An era when men were gentlemen and courteous towards women when they perceive they could use help.
Patsy teaches Cyrus how to keep his temper.
I enjoy this movie, just to stroll down memory lane of good manners. I hope my review helped you.
