This is a romantic comedy featuring Doris Day and Clark gable. Gable plays James Gannon ,the newspaper man, who has come up through the business and is now editor of a large newspaper. Day plays Erica Stone, a professor of journalism, who has asked Gannon to be a guest lecture for her class. At at first declined, in a nasty letter. However his boss insists he go, and after Stone reads the letter, he is too embarrassed to admit he wrote it, but is intrigued by Stone, and stays for the class, and even enrolls. He becomes her best student.
As far as the romance goes, Gannon feels he has a competitor in Dr. Pine (Gig Young) but in fact they are collaborating on a book. There is some fancy competition between the two in terms of who can hold their liquor.
The romance goes well, until, as it always does, Stone discovers the deception. Now these two people who like each other, must figure out how to get past this indiscretion.
This play is a bit short on comedy, but I enjoyed it, having been a journalism student for a time.
Another tid-bit, Day had first intended to be a dancer. She does do some dancing in this movie with Dr. Pine.
