A literary agent is pursued by the charming writer of a popular magazine while she attempts to sway one of her clients, a handsome but innocent college professor, to star in an upcoming movie based on his best-selling novel The Whirlwind.
Susan Lane is a gifted psychiatrist, grounded in self-control. Before returning by train to her practice in Chicago, she spends time back East with war veterans, building their self-esteem, but frowning on the impulsive, as represented by a favorite comic strip called "The Nixie." She bumps into Michael Kent, an officer and the comic strip's author. He likes her instantly and she dislikes him. He's headed to the Pacific, sees her on the train, gets off in Chicago, and with her father's help, pursues her and hatches a plan to marry her. Meanwhile, she has her own plan to get rid of him with the help of a blond patient. Will the Nixie get into her psyche? Written by
This could have been a good serious film for Roz's character
Rosalind Russell is doing some sub par material in She Wouldn't Say Yes. Once again she's a professional woman, this time a psychiatrist who does yeoman service counseling soldiers suffering from shell shock. That part of the film was serious and quite real. In fact I wish Roz had done a serious film with her in that kind of role. With what she later did in Sister Kenny, Russell could definitely have handled a serious part like that.
Instead she meets up with Lee Bowman, A GI traveling cross country on a train to head for the Pacific Theater. And for reasons I still can't fathom, Charles Winninger who is both Russell's father and also a psychiatrist is trying his level best to hook his daughter up with Bowman.
Adele Jergens gets to strut her sexy stuff as temper tantrum throwing diva from Bolivia and I'm sure the men in the audience were given reason to come to this 'women's picture' because of her. There's a definite lack of chemistry between Russell and Bowman. But I'm not sure Tracy and Hepburn could have pulled this one off.
For dedicated Rosalind Russell fans only.
