Years ago, I saw this movie on TV and liked it a lot. I had planned on seeing it again but thought it couldn’t possibly be as amusing as I remembered.
A grammarian (Gary Cooper) working on an encyclopedia hires a dance hall girl (Barbara Stanwyck) to teach him slang. She expands his horizons a lot more than he bargained for.
Implausible but great fun!
Stanwyck as Sugarpuss O’Shea is glamorous and sharp-tongued. Gary Cooper as Bertram Potts is naive and book smart. The two of them are engaging together.
Please treat yourself and watch it.
