Movie Summary

Director:

Released:

Rating:
Not Available
Somebody Loves Me is a 1952 Paramount musical written and directed by Irving Brecher. The film tells the story of real-life star Blossom 'Bloss' Seeley (Betty Hutton) and her rise to fame on the stages of vaudeville and Broadway. Benny Fields (Ralph Meeker) is Blossom's husband and stage partner. Although considered a biography, the film is heavily fictionalized and portrays Fields as an unflattering character who marries Blossom to ensure his own success. In the end, it is Blossom who achieves the fame as a solo performer. The film's musical numbers include "I Cried For You", "Jealous", "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans", "Dixie Dreams", "Rose Room" and "Smiles". A popular musical star of her day, this is Hutton's last big movie before conflicts with Paramount caused her to leave the studio and filmmaking altogether. Somebody Loves Me was filmed in Technicolor and includes a comic appearance by Jack Benny as himself.
