"What a bright and surprising romantic comedy CONTINENTAL DIVIDE is, with its ingratiating stars, its clever direction and its witty screenplay..."
City meets country in this romantic comedy about a tough Chicago newspaperman who falls in love with an ornithologist. Ernie Souchak is a guy who thinks communing with nature means sitting on a bench in the city park. Nell Porter is a woman who has spent most of her life alone in the mountains studying birds. The two meet when a reluctant Souchak is sent to the Rocky Mountains to do a story on the reclusive bird lover. Their mutual attraction overcomes their differences as the mismatched couple begins pursuing a highly irregular relationship.
