| Petty, not pretty!
A terribly dated affair which I doubt was ever entertaining.

A supposed comedy with some musical elements. Neither the comedy nor the music works. The makers of the film appear to have a very narrow view of the world and all situations are forced to agree with this view. An avant garde artist is always impeccably dressed and groomed; the closest he comes to relaxing is loosening his tie. Is this really how it was in 1950?

Robert Cummings does his thing but he is dealing with very weak material set in a very unconvincing situation. Using "fuddy duddy" academia as the background is too lazy an option and doesn't work.

Overall, The Petty Girl is of possible interest to film buffs who search out quaint, unusual films and to fans of Robert Cummings. Otherwise, to be avoided. 2.75.
