Joe E. Brown stars as a cowboy duped into financing a Broadway show. Ginger Rogers is the city girl who tries to help him. How much you'll like this depends on how you feel about Joe E. Brown. His comedy is basically all rubberfacing and a silly voice. I'm not big on Brown and this did little to change my opinion of him. However, it's one of his less obnoxious movies. When he's playing straight instead of doing shtick, he's affable and pleasant to watch. I am a fan of Ginger Rogers and it's always good to see a movie of hers I haven't seen before. This is early Ginger but she's still the best part of the movie. It's a pretty forgettable film but if you're a fan of Brown's you will probably enjoy it a little more.
