Ginger Rogers was a first rate actress, and one of the funniest when she wanted to be. This film has her renting an apartment and having trouble with her rent. Her boss (Robert Benchley) is a sexist pig who demands a date. Several times.
Money forces her landlord to make her share her attic apartment with a painter (Norman Foster) he gets days, she gets nights and the two build certain assumptions about each other and dislike each other, sight unseen.
Sight seen, though they don't know they're sharing an apartment, they fall in love.
Laura Hope Crews is funny as the drunken woman of means who is constantly trying to seduce Foster, and George Sidney is delightful as the landlord.
Guinn 'Big Boy' Williams puts in an appearance as the protective cabbie.
All in all, a delightful film. Good plot, delightful acting, and pre Hayes code we get a glimpse of Miss Roger's legs. I'm sorry, but for all her splendid talent, we must not forget the God-given asset which carried her through so many later films with Freddy Astaire.
