Miss Grant Takes Richmond
Miss Grant Takes Richmond is a 1949 comedy film starring Lucille Ball and William Holden, directed by Lloyd Bacon and released by Columbia Pictures. It was released under the title Innocence is Bliss in the UK.
For Ellen Grant (Ball), the worst student at the Woodruff Secretarial School, it comes as a great surprise when Dick Richmond (Holden) hires her to work at his realty company. Actually, it is her apparent empty-headedness that has won her the job. The real estate firm, and now Ellen, are merely fronts for a bookmaking operation run from the back of the office, where Dick and his associates, Gleason (James Gleason) and Kilcoyne (Frank McHugh), take bets on races.
