Janet Gaynor is charming and funny as Nancy, a southern girl who gets left at the altar and decides to go to New York City to find her intended. En route she runs in snooty author Robert Montgomery, who shares a swanky apartment in NYC with his publisher, Franchot Tone. Montgomery is on a book-signing tour to elude predatory Claire Dodd. Nancy is of course a walking disaster area and ends up moved in with the guys, where she cooks and looks after them. They both fall in lover with her and the fun begins. Great cast in top form. Gaynor is very funny, and Montgomery and Tone are a great team. The art deco apartment is fabulous, too. Also in the cast are Charley Grapewin, Guy Kibbee, Mary Forbes, Cora Witherspoon, Emma Dunn, Reginald Owen, Grant Withers, Marie Blake, Carol Tevis, Elise Cavanna, Charles Lane, Grady Sutton, Sarah Edwards, and Grace Hayle. Great line by Claire Dodd to Robert Montgomery: "I've had a lovely evening, but this wasn't it!"
