This movie, directed by Howard Hawk, stars Cary Grant and Jean Arthur. And it co-stars Rita Haywort, and Richard Barthelmess.

Grant plays Geoff Carter, a tough guy who is the head of an air-freight service that operates in very dangerous mountains. Arthur plays Bonnie Lee, a lady who’s on vacation, and gets stuck while waiting for her next boat to come in. She just happens to go to Carters plane place (which also has a little restaurant). She meets Carter, and he’s pretty rude! Later that day, a man dies while trying to land, and Bonnie finds out how cold hearted Carter really is. He doesn’t even bat a eye when his plane wrecks, but he is really just trying to act like a ‘tough guy’.

Bonnie really starts to fall for Carter, till one day, his old girlfriend comes back (Rita Hayworth). That causes a little bit of trouble!

 

This movie has a sad, but good ending. I really like Howard Hawks movies. He was a great director. He made a few films with Grant, such as; “Bringing Up Baby”, and “His Girl Friday”. This movie, although not a comedy, does have some humorous parts, and that helps break up the drama. I give this movie a A+!
