June Haver as Jeannie, the title character, a glamorous Broadway star. When next-door-neighbors Bill and Jeannie fall in love, Bill's son Joe (Billy Gray) seethes with resentment. Fortunately, Joe's schoolmate (and erstwhile sweetheart) Kitty (Mary Jane Saunders) convinces the boy that the world would be a sorry place without couples, using Noah's Ark as an example. This provides the cue for an extended animated cartoon sequence, courtesy of UPA Studios (then under contract to Columbia: Fox's house cartoonists at Terrytoons weren't quite up to the assignment). Naturally, the film finds time for a few engaging song-and-dance interludes, performed by Dailey and Haver. What really makes The Girl Next Door click is the unforced camaraderie between Dan Dailey and little Billy Gray. The ultra-1950s production design is eye catching. Thank you for your consideration.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Many better musicals have been created from no better material than The Girl Next Door, a so-so offering that simply lacks any kind of spark. Part of the problem lies with leading lady June Haver, a performer who can sing and dance passably but who simply doesn't light up the screen the way that a musical actress should. Watching Haver perform a nothing number like "Nowhere Guy," one keeps wishing that Betty Grable or Debbie Reynolds would come out and show her how it should be done. To be fair, though, Haver is working with a substandard score and script; even Dan Dailey, who has much more in terms of personality, has to struggle to make something out of his role in Girl. As a matter of fact, the only one who really comes off well is Cara Williams, whose sharp-tongued friend gets all the best lines. There's a very eye-catching animated sequence, and the ultra-1950s production design is eye catching, but for the most part Girl is a pretty ho-hum affair.
