Baby It's You! tells the story of Florence Greenberg (Beth Leavel), a New Jersey housewife who propels the Shirelles and other groups to super stardom by ignoring the male dominated recording establishment and striking out on her own.
Then there is the double photo of the logo - a girl group in fashionable and tasteful sparkly cocktail dresses surround a single microphone in synchronized knee-bend faces away from us and toward the footlights; and an ultra-fashionable white woman dominates the photo and the logo both by placement and sheer size. Her lips perfectly lipsticked, her cats eyes glasses, in a matching color, of course, are held off her nose to reveal piercing eyes that sparkle with a confidence and power.
With the gals posed away from us, a border of footlights shining in our eyes, we are also told that this show will be in the mold of Jersey Boys, only this time it will be the rise and fall of a girl group. A coincidence of similarity? I really doubt it.
