Full movie description "The Doughgirls":Arthur and Vivian are just married, but when the get to their honeymoon suite in Washington D.C., they find it occupied. Arthur goes to meet Slade, his new boss, and when he comes back, he finds three girls in his suite. He orders Vivian to get rid of them, but they are friends of Vivian's and as time goes by, it looks more like Grand Central Station than the quiet honeymoon suite Arthur expected. As long as there is anyone else in the suite, Arthur will not stay there and there will be no honeymoon.
Reviews of the The DoughgirlsYou can definitely tell that "The Doughgirls" was a play, as it's basically confined to a hotel suite and there is a lot of dialogue. In fact, it ran on Broadway for over 600 performances and was staged by no less than George Kaufman. The play featured Natalie Schaefer of Gilligan's Island and Arlene Francis, stage and film actress and What's My Line panelist.
The film was made in 1944, and it has a nifty cast: Jane Wyman, Alexis Smith, Ann Sheridan, Jack Carson, Eve Arden, Charles Ruggles, and Alan Mowbray.
Unfortunately the film (for me) goes on too long and isn't particularly well directed. The story concerns a dumb as a box of rocks showgirl, Vivian (Jane Wyman) and her fiancé (Jack Carson) getting married and taking a hotel suite in a Washington, D.C. hotel. However, the present resident, Edna (Ann Sheridan) refuses to leave - in fact, she's in the bathtub. When she exits, Vivian and Edna recognize one another, embrace, and Edna tells Vivian that she's about to be married. That is, until her husband's wife shows up.
Meanwhile, Nan arrives to wait for her intended (Craig Stevens). She also knows Vivian and Edna. Jack Carson by this point has had a fight with his new wife and left. Then a Russian soldier named Natalia (Eve Arden) shows up.
This film was funny and would have been a lot funnier fifteen minutes shorter and directed with a little more pace. Also, Jane Wyman was better than that - she plays this showgirl, and it's a totally external characterization. Knowing she was a fine actress, I blame the director for this. Ann Sheridan, as the no-nonsense Edna, comes off the best, and Eve Arden is terrific as Natalia.
This is a story that was timely in 1944, when accommodations were impossible to come by. The premise of the story is very amusing and zany. If you set the play in the '40s, it could easily be done today with success.
