Arthur B. Woods,
During the Great Depression, a wealthy banker throws away his wife's expensive fur coat; it lands on the head of a stenographer, leading to everyone assuming she is his mistress and has access to his millions.
While running away from the police, playboy racketeer Jack 'Lucky' Wilson receives a non-life threatening bullet wound. Lucky manages to escape and drives as far as he can before passing out. Lucky is found by farmer Henry Miller, who believes Lucky is an innocent man who was randomly shot by gangsters. Lucky contacts his partner, Tony Berrelli, who sends the mob payrolled doctor to check on Lucky's condition. Tony believes this situation is perfect: the Miller farm is the perfect hide-out for Lucky from the police during Lucky's recuperation. Farm life is against Lucky's sensibilities, that is until he meets the pretty Miller daughter, Pauline. He immediately falls for her and she for him. Lucky needs to figure out how to reconcile his gangster background with the simple farm life, especially with Henry who has had his own bad experiences with racketeers, and with the police who are still after him.

predictable plot of bad guy is redeemed by good girl, but...
I've become a big fan of Robert Montgomery since subscribing to TCM and hit the jackpot when he was Jan. star of the month. This is my favorite movie - the thirties had certain boiler plate plots (like every other decade) with the couple caught in the rain, the man realizes he loves her and doesn't take advantage, etc. but he was at his most charming in this movie and Maureen O'Sullivan is my favorite of his co stars. Even with the thirties hair styles and clothes she is a real beauty who would still be considered beautiful today, unlike some of the ladies of that time. I'll take the predictable romance with boy getting girl over so many current movies that are all digital effects, the couples are in bed by the second scene and there is nothing left to the imagination. I'm a little too young to have seen him in his prime and the few movies he made after the war didn't make him a romantic hero to me. But now I'm older and have more taste.
