Rodgers and Hart musical starring Lyon as a hapless riveter who falls into the life of rich society gal Munson when he invades her penthouse in search of a hot rivet that had gotten away. The bored Munson decides to have some fun with this "common" worker and she sets out to pass him off as

a society architect to her friends. The gag soon wears thin and the viewer is left to sort through the surprisingly lackluster tunes, which include: "You're the Cats," "Nobody Loves a Riveter," "Like Ordinary People Do," and "Too Good To Be True" (which was cut before the film's original release).

Rodgers and Hart were so disappointed with this critical and commercial failure that they withdrew from their next two assignments for First National. Remade in 1934 as HAPPINESS ABROAD and again in 1941.
