Bob is a struggling artist who paints for his own amusement. Julie is a rich society girl. When they meet, it is cute and they are soon married.

But this is not the life that either Julie or Oscar want. Written by

...because some of the possible bawdier aspects of this situation could not be explored due to that production code. Nevertheless, the cast is really good in this one and marks Monty Woolley's first film appearance at age 49 as an art critic. Let me tell you, Wooley's screen persona in his later films would never have taken lying down the shabby treatment he got when being mistaken for a reporter like he pretty much did here.
Robert Montgomery plays a starving artist who impulsively marries heiress Rosalind Russell. He doesn't care if his art sells, but with her encouragement he becomes quite successful, and the success goes to his head. Now she must bring him back down to earth. Enjoyable comedy, good MGM production. The stars are always enjoyable to watch.
Perhaps the most disappointing aspect of it is that the comic possibilities inherent in a rich, society girl adapting to the bohemian life are left completely unexplored. Also, Robert Montgomery has the personality and manner of a banker in this one, not an artist. Roz Russell's good, as usual, and Robert Benchley, playing a mooch, is amusing. Mickey Rooney is in this for just one minute, but it's really funny, because as soon as you hear that Tarzan-yell, you know who it's gotta be! That voice is unmistakable!
