Sandhog Jim Ryan is suspended from his job helping to dig a tunnel beneath a river because of an incident while being photographed for a story by Katherine Grant. Feeling responsible, Katherine hires Ryan to assist her during his suspension. She is elegant and sophisticated, while he is outspoken and down-to-earth. This combination leads to conflicts, and ultimately romance. Written by
This sexist "romantic comedy" has very little going for it except the wonderful cast, and a few funny scenes such as the "sand hogs" playing their musical chairs game. Claudette and Fred surely do the best they can with hardly anything to work with. There are good production values all the way and the tunnel work looks very realistic. Hollywood was always ready to go the "whole hog" for very little result.
