About the Movie
Journalist Elizabeth Lane is one of the country's most famous food writer. In her columns, she describes herself as a hard working farm woman, taking care of her children and being an excellent cook. But this is all lies. In reality she is an unmarried New Yorker who can't even boil an egg. The recipes come from her good friend Felix. The owner of the magazine she works for has decided that a heroic sailor will spend his Christmas on 'her' farm. Miss Lane knows that her career is over if the truth comes out, but what can she do?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Frolicsome in an artificially hearty sort of way.
Fresh: Silly as its premise may be, the film itself is both hilarious and heart-warming.
Great Christmas Fun for Everyone!
I am so happy to see that iTunes has added this movie! This movie is a Christmas Eve tradition for my family and I. The storyline is cute and enjoyable, with many funny moments. The whole cast is fantastic in this movie, especially Uncle Felix. If you enjoy Its a Wonderful Life, but are looking for a lighter movie, you should enjopy this treasure! The 1940s fashions are also a fun advantage of watching this movie. Its just one of my favorites, and I wouldnt be supreised if it becomes a favorite of yours too!
Cute Christmas movie.
I'm not a huge fan of Barbara Stanywick, but this is a cute Christmas comedy to watch.
Classic Hollywood at Its Best!
Barbara Stanwyck is great in this classic boy-meets-girl tale, with complications: she's supposed to be married with kids. They both try to resist while falling in deep. Humorous scenes with the Hungarian cook, pancake on the ceiling, a borrowed child (stand-in for hers), and fake husband. Great scenes with horse and sleigh over a snowy field. Highly recommend!!
