With over a quarter century of playing newspapermen, the role of hard-boiled City Editor Jim Gannon fit Clark Gable like an old shoe. No-nonsense, pragmatic, and a workaholic, Gannon was the classic 'school drop-out' who learned the newspaper business from the ground up, and held college in contempt. While Gannon was obviously a dinosaur, even by 1950s' standards, Gable appears to be having a ball as the cigarette-smoking, plain-spoken, 'blue-collar' hero.
Despite the constant "Will she or Won't she?" sexual undercurrent of so many of her best comedies of the fifties and early sixties, Doris Day was also a feminist during the era, with her characters self-sufficient, and often holding down important positions based on merit. As Erica Stone, an ex-reporter who returns to college to teach journalism, her demeanor is professional and her knowledge unimpeachable, making her the perfect foil for Gannon.Read more ›
The snappy comedy with it`s witty script shows the incredible talent and versatility of Doris as she is projects a highly intelligent, independent working lady of the 1950`s who is still able to acquire the repect of both men and women alike whilst maintaining her femininity. Clark Gable was brilliant in this, actually I think it was his best film, it seems there was quite a rapport with him and Ms Day. Gig Young was also right for the part and the nightclub scene was extremely funny. The one thing you can say about this movie is that it really hasn`t dated in it`s appeal with it`s sharp wit. Well worth watching, sheer class!
