It isn't a matter of learning. It's instinct.
I'm a brain with no pulse, eh? I'm a woman, Verney, more woman than you'll ever know.

Advertizing Agency Partner Rosalind Russell (A M McGregor) hires painter Fred MacMurray (Tom) as her secretary in this male/female role reversal story that both Russell and MacMurray are very at ease with. MacMurray breezes his way through the film in a very aloof Boris Johnson kind of way, while Russell is excellent in her role.
MacMurray doesn't convince as an artist but it really doesn't matter. Russell is funny as a woman in control who knows that it's a man that she needs for happiness in life. It's not a revelation of a movie but it is easy-going and enjoyable.
Opera Hat or Top Hat? Don't be a flub!
