Movie Info

Bored with serving as official hostess at political events for her wealthy father, Mary Smith (Merle Oberon) goes to a bar, which is promptly raided. Displeased, her father sends her to Palm Beach with her two maids, who take her on a blind date, where she meets taciturn cowboy Stretch Willoughby (Gary Cooper). Learning that Stretch dislikes the idle rich, Mary pretends to be a maid, and after the couple falls in love and marries, she has some quick explaining to do to her father -- and Stretch.

Audience Reviews for The Cowboy and the Lady

  • Feb 04, 2011
    Cute comedy would be nothing without the stars in the lead. Although they make an odd looking couple that works for the story and they both radiate charisma and movie star beauty. The supporting cast is peppered with familiar faces bouying up the featherweight script moving it along at a breezy pace.

    Some great Cooper/Brennan moments.
