On a rare showing on TCM, I fell in love with this movie! A wonderful pairing of the fiery Rogers and a timid Stewart, made the chemistry between the two believable.
On a trip to the city, Stewart meets, falls for, and marries Rogers only later realizing his staunch and rigid father would never approve. Taking her back to his small town, Stewart places her in a home for unmarried girls, until he can break the news to his father that he married a showgirl.
I loved the setting of this movie, and being in black and white only enhanced the scenes. If you liked "The Philadelphia Story" you'll love this! A classic boy-meets-girl, story with delightful humor and a believable romance...
