My Dad introduced me and my siblings to this movie when we were young. I don’t know how he came upon it, but I thank him for sharing this with us. This was such a fun and cute movie and we would watch it over and over again.
Jonathan, trying to find his niche gets fired from a series of jobs. But he has an artistic nature. He was happy working at a job where he created mannequins, but was subsequently fired from there too. One day he sees the mannequin he created in a window display of a flailing department store. After he saves the owner’s life, She gives him a job doing window displays. During his night shift, the mannequin he created comes to life, and all sorts of fun, adventure, mishaps, and romance ensue.
This is the first, and only other movie, that I ever saw Kim Catrell in. And Andrew McCarthy was cute and hilarious.
Estelle Getty played the matronly older boss, and Hollywood (snaps fingers) was a flamboyant hoot! I still have a copy of this movie and pull it out from time to time.
Anybody else familiar with this movie?
