How was your experience?
I'm a bit of a stickler for costuming and the men's suits looked like the came from Men's Wearhouse...there was nothing "period" about them. That might be easy enough to forgive if everything else had been spot on, but while it was well sung, it just seemed to be missing something. Norma was a little too young, Joe Gillis was too blond and lacking in rugged sex-appeal (he was a little to blond and soft-featured, even if physically very fit), there was no chemistry between Joe and Betty, and maybe a little too much chemistry between Joe and Norma.
