Carole Lombard‘s only Technicolour film is this hysterical comedy about a small-town woman mistakenly thought to be dying of internal poisoning, until her doctor points out otherwise. A New York reporter () has shown up to take her to the Big Apple and show her the city’s sights as a last request for her and a way to boost his newspaper’s circulation. She sees a chance to get out of her boring existence and keeps up the lie that she is still dying in order to get the chance to see New York, all the while falling more and more in love with her host. This wonderful film is most famous for a hilarious fight between the two leads that culminates with her punching his lights out.
