Great little guy against powerful rich guy story
11 August 2018 | by donwyattSee all my reviews

This is from back when movies were more about script and story line, when movies were movies. Classic romantic little guy against rich big guy and the girl in the middle. Haines is a reporter who believes that's powerful rich guy is not on the up and up, illegally profiting off others. Very cute movie and decent quality given its age.
