When they talk of marriage, Malcolm decides to make a tour promoting his new book, and in a small southern town meets Nancy Briggs at an autographing session at the local bookstore. Nancy is getting married that night, but her fiancé, working in New York, doesn't come back for the wedding, so her family gives her the fare to go to New York to find him. At the same time, Malcolm gets a wire from his publisher and friend, Robert Hanson, telling him to come home because Vivian has left town. Traveling to New York on the same train, Nancy proves to be a pest who Malcolm hopes to avoid once they arrive, but when Nancy can't find her fiancé, she goes to Malcolm, since he's the only one she knows in the city. He is about to kick her out when Vivian returns, so he uses Nancy as an excuse to get rid of Vivian. In the ensuing days, Nancy ... Written by

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!"
