Margaret Drew runs her trucking company single-mindedly, if not ruthlessly. The only thorn in her side is writer Michael Holmes who is writing a book on some of her tough ways. With no time for men, the effect an attractive stranger has on her at her sister's wedding is unnerving. When it turns out this is the hated writer, she starts seriously to lose her bearings. Surely it can't become Maggie and Mike? Written by

reminded me a bit of nick and nora charles aka the thin man in some ways
a really fun movie. lots of stuff going on in each scene. a joy to watch. very good pacing. tight script.
joan is really really excellent in this comedic role. i am a fan of joan crawford (i like her more with more study) but not a huge fan relative to some other classic stars. so in other words she stands out more then usual in this role. very sexy looking in some of the gowns also as a bonus.
melvyn douglas is also a hoot in this.
the banter between douglas and crawford is believable and a LOT OF FUN. it has a touch of the screwball comedy mixed in with plenty of other comedy.
an acting and comedic tour de force.
supporting cast is quite solid, the story a lot of fun.
worth your time to seek out.
