Enjoyable, Randomly Titled Comedy
George Raft and Leo Carillo return from Italy broke. They get a job working on a city construction crew, where he spots super-rich Rosalind Russell and falls instantly in love.
But life goes on and soon he lands a job in city government, where his energy and honesty gives him a lot of clout. When Miss Russell's husband, Alan Dinehart, steals four million dollars from an investment firm, Raft gives him two days to replace the money or face more than a decade in prison. Dinehart flees to Cuba, while Miss Russell comes up with the cash. Soon sparks fly between the two leads.
It's a romantic comedy carried more on the energy of the two leads than any great number of jokes or gags. They are very engaging, and Miss Russell's simple line readings are very telling. Other interesting performers include Arline Judge as Raft's jealous secretary, and the ubiquitous Charles Lane.
