Betty Comden and Adolph Green

Since The Thin Man post I’ve been thinking about other writing couples. Betty Comden and Adolph Green wrote some of the best musicals ever made, and because of Comden’s input, the female characters were great. I particularly like On The Town’s Brunhilde Esterhazy,(Betty Garrett)a horny lady taxi driver who’s intent on getting Frank Sinatra to “COME UP TO MY PLACE”, and Claire Huddesen, (Ann Miller) an equally horny anthropologist who has designs on Ozzie (Jules Munshin. “C’mon specimen!”
