In its Golden Age, Hollywood boasted many delightful actresses who could play beautiful, smart, funny working girls. But when it came to beautiful, smart, funny career women, Rosalind Russell was the ideal choice. In this polished romantic comedy, she portrays a judge wooed by Jeff Sherman (Walter Pidgeon), an urbane newspaperman. Sherman's real intent is to put the lady in a compromising position so that his boss (Edward Arnold) can blackmail her into a favorable ruling in his messy divorce case. But the soon-smitten reporter didn't count on Her Honor being quite so beautiful, smart and funny. Academy Award® winner* Norman Taurog directs the ensuing comic misunderstandings and mayhem with a feather-light hand.
