Ruth Hussy is the secretary to her rich boss (Robert Young). Suddenly, out of the blue, they realize how much they love each other and plan to marry. But first, he needs to meet her family. During this kooky meeting, it becomes obvious to Ruth that her working-class background is so completely unlike Young's upper-crust world that they should slow down--and wait to marry. So, to help things along, Young decides to 'slum it'--to hang with her family and get to know them better. However, some of her family are pretty annoying and what will happen when Young tries to help out and improve their lives? Oddly, his kind gestures aren't always appreciated.
This is a pretty enjoyable comedy with some fun performances. However enjoyable though, it is a bit uneven and is not a great comedy--just a nice one that fans of old films will likely like. When you watch, get a load of Lana Turner before her big Hollywood makeover. She sure looked very, very different--and a lot more natural.
