Opening scene takes place in a rodeo arena somewhere outside Manhattan, but surrounding terrain of flat dusty land, palm trees and mountains is obviously someplace in the West. See more »

Quotes

Jean: [Watching Kay milk the cow] There, you see? It's easy. Just like playing golf. Keep your head down and your eye on the bucket.
Kay: [to the cow after it reacts] Sorry, there. I forgot to get my manicure this morning.
Jean: She's about empty. You can let go now.
Kay: Whew!
Jean: You're a veteran.
Kay: Yeah? Of which war?

Just a Good Movie
2 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie featured Irenne Dunne city slicking wife who marries a widower rancher. She and her husband (Fred McMurray)are just a fun couple who have many funny incidents that happen as a married couple. This movie is reminiscent of The Egg and I that Dunne is featured in during the 1940s. Although some say this movie is not very good for Dunne and that it is predictable-- it is funny, innocent, and a great movie for a Sunday afternoon with the family. My family and I have watched copies of this on VHS for years and I even bought another copy off ebay hoping to get a better copy (but it happened to be a copy recorded from TV--BOO ebay!). Anyway my aunt asked me to borrow my copy just the other day and I couldn't help but to watch it again. It requires little though some good laughs and a love of classic films as a prerequisite to watch this one.
