Storyline

Margaret Drew runs her trucking company single-mindedly, if not ruthlessly. The only thorn in her side is writer Michael Holmes who is writing a book on some of her tough ways. With no time for men, the effect an attractive stranger has on her at her sister's wedding is unnerving. When it turns out this is the hated writer, she starts seriously to lose her bearings. Surely it can't become Maggie and Mike? Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Not exactly your average Joan film.
9 October 2000 | by sadie_thompsonSee all my reviews

I was startled by this movie, because as a rule Joan stuck to a pattern. In the 20s, she was a flapper. In the 30s, a shopgirl. 40s, put-upon drama queen and so on. This movie, a 1942 film, doesn't conform to any Joan pattern. It's a comedy, with Joan actually being funny. The plot is simple, with Joan being a stern trucking company owner who is "transformed by love." How is this done? A very frantic jitterbug, lots of mistaken identity, and a delightful drunk scene. Listen to Joan try to say "speech of acceptance" while more than a bit tipsy. This is a very good movie and highly recommended by this Joan fan.
