Quotes

Chris: I'm telling you, Orvie. There's a woman.
Orvie: Why you telling me? Why don't you tell her?
Chris: You mean...?
[Shrugs it off]
Chris: Ah. Sure would like to meet her though.
Orvie: Well, don't sit perched up there like an old barn owl. Just walk up and introduce yourself. That's what I always and it never missed.
Chris: Oh, you can't do that to a city woman.
Orvie: The heck you can't.

Some dull moments
3 June 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Rodeo cowboy Chris (Fred MacMurray) has a whirlwind romance while visiting New York for a charity gig where he meets song writer Kay (Irene Dunne.)

After rapidly getting married she drives cross country to his ramshackle Wyoming ranch where she becomes stepmother to his two daughters from his first marriage.

Much of the movie sees Kay trying to adjust to her life at the ranch and raise her new stepdaughters. Problems begin with the neighbouring rancher who holds the water rights and whose cow, Kay accidentally shoots.

Kay contemplates returning to Broadway to earn money in this fish out of water comedy. The cast make the film better than it should be, there are a few songs but it really is not that funny and rather predictable.
