Storyline

After being in Hollywood for a month with lots of compliments but no offers, girl next door Libby Caruso decides to give up on having a singing career and focus on what she believes is her destiny: to be a wife, hopefully to a doctor. To nab a husband, she believes she has to get a job where many eligible bachelors would notice her, that job despite she having no skills besides singing. Away from her job as a Girl Friday at a brokerage firm, Libby, upon seeing him, believes she is destined to marry Paul Davis, who works at the product development company where Libby's best friend and roommate Jan McNair works, and who believes he is God's gift to the world, if only anyone would notice. Jan knows that Libby isn't Paul's type, he who didn't even notice her. However, who may be Libby's type, but who she in turn didn't really notice is Cuz Rickover, part-time supermarket stock-boy and part-time bass player among some other part-time activities. Ultimately, Paul believes he can help Libby ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

A real version of The Lady Valet clothes & accessory rack, as invented by Connie Francis in the film, was introduced at Macy's in New York on August 6th, 1964. Francis appeared and clips were shown from the movie. There were two models to choose from The Lady Sophisticate, "with decorated Formica cosmetic tray and two-way make-up mirror" for $24.94 and The Lady Ingenue "with lacquered aluminum cosmetic tray" for $14.94. The rack itself was "5 feet in height and made of strong, lightweight steel, with a lacquered brass finish." See more »

A Date with Connie Francis
12 September 2011 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

After a great opening credits sequence, our story begins. Attractive telephone operator Connie Francis (as Libby Caruso) wants to make it big in show business, get married and have babies. With her figure and singing voice, this shouldn't take too long. To prevent clothing from wrinkling overnight, Ms. Francis invents the "Lady Valet" which garners her an appearance on "The Tonight Show" starring Johnny Carson. He thinks her invention looks like a "blind date for a Martian," and invites Francis to sing. She's another Caruso, but goes unnoticed by tall Jim Hutton (as Paul Davis)...

"Looking for Love" finds Francis in good voice, and improved as a comedy star. She's not paired well with Mr. Hutton, which was the story's point, but still… Best friend Susan Oliver (as Jan McNair) and bass player Joby Baker (as Cuz Rickover) round out a romantic quartet. The title track reached #34 on the "Cash Box" pop chart and the soundtrack LP sold moderately during The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night" onslaught. MGM and Francis continued the formula for one more film, with decreasing returns. They really should have been producing a TV variety series, with singing and skits.

**** Looking for Love (8/5/64) Don Weis ~ Connie Francis, Jim Hutton, Susan Oliver, Joby Baker
