1944 Romantic comedy
Story concerns a famous femme photographer for a national picture magazine (Colbert), and the complications that evolve when, on an assignment to lens a tunnel construction project, she meets up with a sandhog (MacMurray).
From there on the basic story is pretty much pretense, but the laughs come fast, and the performances by Colbert and MacMurray are capital.
Colbert emphasizes her flair for comedy and doesn't spare herself either in relegating her usual sartorial elegance for the sake of serious story values, as indicated in the climactic scene when she gets spilled into a lake of spewing mud from a tunnel cave-in.
