One night, while attending the opera, young shipping tycoon Stephen Herrick (Edmond O'Brien) happens to meet an unusually bubbly young woman named Dot (Lucille Ball). The following day, with his head still spinning from their dizzying encounter, she walks into his office to serve as his secretary. Despite her brash moxie -- or because of it -- Stephen finds himself inescapably drawn to the lively Dot, which is a big problem for Dot's beau, a Navy brute called Coffee Cup (George Murphy).

Tom M O'Brien and Ball are good but idiot Murphy and support ruin the movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/21 Full Review Audience Member Lucy and O'Brien make something out of this little B movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member With that title you might expect this to be dreadful and while it's no award winner it is a charming little B with three appealing leads. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member still gotta ask- what the hell is a gob?!?!?!!? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member pretty funny inspite of tired cliche of the love triangle Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
