Calendar Girl is a classic 1947 musical comedy about struggling artists in turn of the century New York. Like many aspiring artists of the day, dancer Patricia O'Neill (Jane Frazee) lives in Greenwich Village boarding house while working to make her dream of New York stardom come true. Two friends, Johnny Bennett (William Marshall) and Steve Adams (James Ellison), also reside in the same brownstone and each falls for the lovely young woman. Each man tries to woo her with their artistic gifts. Shy Johnny composes a song for her, but the bolder Steve paints a portrait that gets chosen for a calendar. Patricia's father, Fire Chief O'Neill (Victor McLaglen), thinks the picture shows too much leg, but Patricia finally gets her Broadway break. Although she initially falls for Steve, Patricia finds his affection fleeting and finds her heart pulled towards the quieter Johnny. Alan Dwan ("Sands of Iwo Jima") directs this romantic musical.
