The Harvey Girls (1946) - a musical starring Judy Garland.
Summary via netflix - On a train trip west to become a mail-order bride, Susan Bradley (Judy Garland) meets a cheery crew of young women traveling to open a Harvey House restaurant at a remote whistle stop, and joins them when her marriage plans fall through. The girls battle corruption in their new town, mostly through the use of showstopping musical numbers.
Part of the town's "corruption" that the Harvey girls are out to get rid of: Angela Lansbury and her fellow "dancing girls".
This movie has a total virgin/whore thing going on with it - the dancing girls are mean and sort of bitch-tastic, but the Harvey girls are annoying and uptight.
Judy's character ends up being sort-of inbetween by the end though.
I love cowboys who aren't afraid to wear color.
Looking at this it's hard to imagine that Angela would later end up playing Jessica Fletcher (or Mrs. Potts!).
Ohhhhhhhh yeah. I bet they'll be doing belly shots.
