After her wealthy father's business collapses, Claudette Colbert applies for a writing job on Fred MacMurray's Chicago-based magazine. Writer Robert Young, who is attracted to the socialite, informs editor MacMurray of the girl's recent financial problems, and MacMurray reluctantly hires

her. The hard-edged MacMurray and the strong-willed Colbert soon develop a love/hate relationship that, despite constant arguing, ends up in a plan for marriage. When Colbert takes it upon herself to tidy up MacMurray's "lived-in" bachelor apartment, he explodes and sends his fiancee packing.

Colbert falls into the arms of the still-adoring Young, and the two run off to romantic Crown Point, Indiana, to be married. MacMurray speeds off to Indiana on his motorcycle, interrupts the ceremony, and substitutes himself as the groom. This is a pleasant comedy that features Colbert doing yet

another variation on her role in IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT (1934). The battle of the sexes theme is familiar, but the chemistry between the spontaneous couple gives the routine plot a sparkle all its own.
