Storyline

He is one of the best riveters in the union, but he is still a day laborer. She comes from money, but when they saw each other, it was love at first sight. They date, they dance, they fall for each other. First, she had to say no to Clay, which was easy. Then she had to bring Hap to meet her parents, which was not easy. Hap is the wrong type, but he dislikes their lifestyle as much as they do his. But if it is to work, he will be the sole support of Juliette and he cares not for her money.

Don't Bungle Your Forks at the Ritz
20 August 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

High-rise construction worker Ben Lyon (as "Hap" Harrigan) notices "The Hot Heiress" Ona Munson (as Juliette Hunter) in an apartment window. Although he's only a common laborer, the pair fall in love. They begin dating, with Ms. Munson's snooty friends mistaking Mr. Lyon for an architect. At a swanky charity bazaar, Lyon's co-worker pal Tom Dugan (as Bill Dugan) gets drunk and reveals the truth about Lyon being poor, to Munson's romantic rival, a well-heeled Walter Pidgeon (as Clay).

Lyon, who found success with "Hell's Angels" (1930), is sure-footed on the construction beams, but not a memorable singer. The Rogers & Hart songs weren't their best. Leading lady Munson, from the stage, was most memorable as the veteran prostitute "Belle" in "Gone with the Wind" (1939). The film's staging wasn't bad for 1931, but everything else is ordinary. Lyon's character "Hap" Harrigan has nothing to do with the plainclothes adventure hero "Hop" Harrigan, who was popular in the 1940s.
