That was just my little dig at the PC crowd. This movie may be an anachronism for today's society, but it is a fun watch, and a highly entertaining movie. It stars Cary Grant and Betsey Drake. Betsy plays a goofy girl with a good heart, who pursues the seemingly unattainable Grant, who she fell for after they met at a magazine rack in a local store. She is smitten and pursues him like a woman obsessed. Grant is a pediatrician, who has no interest in her whatsoever. She creates what seem like chance meetings, much to the chagrin of Grant. He is wise to her antics and just finds them amusing, knowing full well that this relationship will never get off the ground . I as a viewer thought to myself that there is no way this good looking successful man is going to fall for this goofy and strange person. If that happened today he would probably get a restraining order out against her. The two of them have this wonderful interplay that is very amusing. He does a brief imitation of her to someone, and it is dead on. I always wondered if he improvised that scene. I won't tell you the ending, since you may not have seen it, but it is a surprise. Betsy Drake and Cary Grant were married soon after doing this movie together. I believe the marriage lasted 10 years. Give it a shot. They certainly don't make them like this anymore
