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.

Trivia

This movie was such a box-office flop that Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart declined to work on two additional films for First National Pictures (although their songs were about the only thing the critics liked about this movie). See more »

Ben Lyon Is Terrific
5 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Handsome Ben Lyon has never been more loose and charming than he is here as a riveter with eyes for a rich girl (Ona Munson). The songs by Rodgers and Hart are clever. The plot heats up when Munson invites Lyon and friends to her country house (which looks like a hotel) replete with huge swimming pool. Another funny bit has Munson going to a chop suey joint and clearly not having a clue about the food.

The supporting cast is top notch, with Walter Pigeon, Thelma Todd, Inez Courtney, and Tom Dugan all doing well and especially Nella Walker as the acidic mother (Oh, stop perspiring!). And while the construction scenes are all back shots, Lyon proves a nimble girder walker. He also has a good singing voice.

Lyon should have been a bigger star, but he always seemed to be cast in these B productions.
