Landlord Eli West needs to pay for his radio, so he leases Mary Wilson's apartment to the Ghonoff Brothers, but West arranges for Mary to live in the basement apartment, which just happens to be rented by struggling artist Gary Martin. No problem, however (thinks West) since Mary works as a saleslady by day, and Gary a night shift trucking manager by night, so they will never have to see each other. Conflicts soon arise with the two not being able to stand the other's habits and each tries to make the other fed up enough to leave. To further complicate things, Mary & Gary have already met and have developed a crush on each other, but circumstances will drive the two to stop seeing the other as well as the fact that the forces are about to reveal their apartment secret together. It's hard to tell if this is better than the 1933 version, Rafter Romance, but it does have its moments as the remake plays more for laughs than the 33 version, but the plot is hardly jointed and there is hardly anything new in this version, as well as downplaying the romantic aspect of the film by not really making us wonder if they will truly fall for each other. Dunn, Bourne, Pangborn, Woodbury, Kennedy, & Ward are all in fine B movie form, and its a fun 60 minutes for all. Rating, 5.
