Premise 1: Betty Hutton was never lovelier, more talented, energetic, sincere, or entertaining. Betty ALWAYS carried the show, all through her career, and continued to do so during this mediocre program.
Premise 2: The script, sets, and cinematography were so-so.
Premise 3: The other cast members over-acted their corny parts.
Premise 4: The script and overall production were probably about as good as TV would have been in the early 1950's. Unfortunately, this was the late 1950's when TV was MUCH, much more sophisticated.
Premise 5: In a positive sense, the scripts were probably as good as any of the sitcoms from the 1950's through today. Just needed better production and delivery.
Premise 6: Everything else I have ever seen Betty in, movie-wise, I watch over and over and over, and never tire of them. But when I ordered this DVD of The Betty Hutton Show, I could hardly stand to sit through it, except for that shining star Betty, who was so good in her own right.
Premise 7: Betty, you were always a winner! No matter what.
