different paths

'sweet smell of success' came out in 1957. every role was colorful in this very black and white drama. among all the parts that held the power hungry vs. sincere characters together, the two leads could not have been more different. barbara nichols was typecast in her long career as a 'brassy' gal with the baby voice and a heart of gold. in this she is so abused it hurts to watch. barbara has 77 screen credits. susan harrison played the soft spoken and innocent girl who is deeply in love with a jazz musician. it was her debut on the big screen. in her ten year acting career did some t.v. but only one other film.
