This movie was about the daughter of an oil tycoon who is about to marry a man who her father does not approve of. The daughter, Joan, is then kidnapped by an airplane pilot, Steve, who is to be paid by her father to do so in order to stop the shotgun wedding. All was well until he airplane went down in the desert. Poor Steve had a broken plane and a very angry lady on his hands!
Steve and Joan end up in a small abandoned western town and meet an old man named Pop who lives alone in the ghost town who helps them out by giving them a place to stay. All the while, her to be husband and her father are in a race to find her first, the husband to marry her, and the father to keep her away from him. Throughout their stay Joan and Steve butt heads but eventually begin to soften towards one another and fall in love.
I really enjoyed this movie, there were a lot of funny moments and I laughed a lot! I'd never seen a movie with James Cagney and Bette Davis but it makes me want to see more of their films.
