Movie Info

Steve Fisk (Clark Gable) is a longshoreman turned mayor of a small California city. Clarissa Standish (Loretta Young) is an upper-class, college-educated woman and mayor of a little town in Maine. While attending a mayors' convention in San Francisco, the two opposites meet and eventually fall in love. But romantic misunderstandings during the convention, and political dealings with Fisk's rival, crooked politician Les Taggart (Raymond Burr), threaten to put a stop to their romance.

  • Oct 04, 2012
    Ordinary comedy of note more for its cast than any special quality the film itself possesses. Gable and Loretta Young are reunited for the only time after their torrid affair on the set of Call of the Wild resulted in a secret child who was one of Hollywood's most notorious open secrets. This was also Frank Morgan's final completed film, he started work on the disastrous Judy Garland version of Annie Get Your Gun but suffered a heart attack and passed away before the film was restarted with Betty Hutton. As for this picture's story its a bunch of silly nonsense of misunderstandings but the cast give it a game reading.
