Your rating:

Bored with serving as official hostess at political events for her wealthy father, Mary Smith (Merle Oberon) goes to a bar, which is promptly raided. Displeased, her father sends her to Palm Beach with her two maids, who take her on a blind date, where she meets taciturn cowboy Stretch Willoughby (Gary Cooper). Learning that Stretch dislikes the idle rich, Mary pretends to be a maid, and after the couple falls in love and marries, she has some quick explaining to do to her father -- and Stretch. Neither the dalliance nor the cowboy fit with the upper class image projected by her esteemed father, forcing her to choose.
