After its release, the original nitrate negative and fine grain prints were given to Mary Roberts Rinehart. She had a 16mm safety print made from the 35mm negative so she could see the film and then junked the negative. Over the years, it was believed that only her 16mm print had survived, but in fact the studio's 35mm print was safely stored at the UCLA Film and Television Archive, which used it to preserve the film in 2016.

Gary Cooper and Carole Lombard are magic together. It is hard to tell if they are acting or just carrying on an off-screen romance on-screen.
At the beginning of the movie, socialite, playgirl Carol sashays over to her straight-laced aristocratic father, bends over and says, "Spank me, good daddy, I need it." You know immediately we are in a pre-code film.
Cooper plays a slow talking cowboy who doesn't think she's anything special. He tells her that all women are a disappointment to him. She's angry that he's not falling at her feet and drooling. She explains her plan explicitly to get him to fall in love with her. When the plan ends, she finds that she's succeeded, but she laments that she has also trapped herself. They're in love.
That's the first twenty minutes of the movie, then it really gets interesting, as the movie explores the problems of love between two people from two different social and class backgrounds.
