DetailsBells Are Ringing
is a romantic comedy musical (the film of which starred Dean Martin); Ella is a New York answerphone message service operator who cannot help involving herself in the lives of her clients, including a struggling script writer, a Marlon Brando style actor, and a dentist who wants to be a song writer and sings while he works! Add to this an unscrupulous con-man who has just started using the message service as a front for an illegal book-making racket and you have the basis of this rarely seen delightful musical.
