Composer Frank Loesser scored his greatest artistic triumph with this touching, dramatic and intensely personal love story about a middle-aged vintner whose mail-order marriage proposal is accepted under the girl’s mistaken assumption that a photo of his young, handsome foreman is her intended husband.
Music, lyrics and book by Frank Loesser
Based on the play They Knew What They Wanted by Sidney Howard
Directed by John Rubinstein
