Sexy, wisecracking nightclub singer Sugarpuss O'Shea is a hot tomato who needs to be kept on ice: mobster boyfriend Joe Lilac is suspected of murder and Sugarpuss' testimony could put him away. Naive Professor Bertram Potts meets Miss O'Shea while researching an article on slang and in true romantic comedy fashion the two worlds collide. When Miss O'Shea hides out with Potts and his fellow professors, everyone learns something new: the professors how to cha-cha and Potts the meaning of "yum-yum"!

      Comments about this product:

      This is a great comedy drama with a unique story line made back when writing, acting & directing made the picture, not tons of special effects. I have grown to really appreciate Barbara Stanwyck's abilities and while I'm luke warm on some (not all mind you) of Gary Cooper's movies these two together plus a splended group of supporting actors makes this movie a pleasure.

        This movie is a great night in with popcorn.

        Sugarpuss O'Shea (Barbara Stanwyck) is a sassy, high energy girl friend to a mob boss who is wanted by the police. The police are searching for Sugarpuss to be a witness against her boyfriend.

        In the meantime Bertram Potts (Gary Cooper) is a grumpy, naive Professor who along with five other crusty but lively, old scholars are in the middle of their ninth year of writing an encyclopedia. Professor Potts is up to "S" for Slang. He comes to the conclusion that he needs to take a field trip to update his (very outdated slang vocabulary). He decides to go to a nightclub where he meets Miss O'Shea. Then the fun begins!

        Miss O'Shea' decides to take Professor Potts up on an offer to update his slang vocabulary and at the same time hide herself away from the police. She ends up finagling her way into their home and into their hearts.

        This is a wonderfully funny, romantic comedy and if you are a lover of vintage movies this is one that belongs in your collection. Enjoy!

              An unjustly obscure screwball comedy that
              maximizes the comedic talents of Stanwyck and Cooper.

                  Gene Krupa, one of the best drummers of the 40s, plays Drum Boogie with two match sticks on a box of matches! Very entertaining.
                  And, Gary Cooper is very charming.
