Storyline

When a crafty reporter uses false pretenses to get a story out of heiress Tony Gateson, she turns the tables on him, telling the press that she's engaged to him and that she's given him a million dollar dowry. Suddenly he's on the front page and every salesman is at his doorstep. He loses his job and a day later asks her to call off the ruse; she tricks him again and the publicity continues. She stays cheerful and resourceful through a series of misadventures that has him alternately back on his job and fired. Meanwhile, a count who's her ex-fiancé shows up in New York, and maybe that marriage is back on. Can an heiress be a human being, and can a reporter get a scoop? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

i laughed out loud...and thats rare
19 February 2016 | by rickdumesnil-55203See all my reviews

this film is hilarious from beginning to end. don ameche getting phone calls from MABEL...the two reporters in a laughing craze remembering old times......the jail scene the doors......Loretta young has got to be one of the best looking of all actresses. and good in comedy. as for TYRONE POWER may i say its not a good thing to see him so often on screen. we tend to look at only him and not the expressions of other actors. this man is perfection. and power handles comedy just as well as CARY GRANT. was going to give it a 10...but lets not go overboard. heard it has been remade as the wonderful urge....i got this one too and will watch it later. buy or watch this funny unpretentious little screwball comedy....you wont regret it
