Description by OLDIES.com:
A beautiful and prestigious doctor, Hedy Fredericks (Ruth Hussey), returns to her hometown en route to Chicago and gets detoured by handsome Air Force test pilot, Morgan Hale (a.k.a. Smedley). Her overworked and conniving uncle, Doctor J.H. "Doc" Fredericks (Charles Ruggles), encourages Morgan's pursuit of Hedy for his own reasons, and the two men devise an uproarious fake injury to keep her from leaving. Despite her intelligence and expertise as a physician, Hedy falls for the ruse.
Known for playing sophisticated women, Ruth Hussey was nominated for an Academy Award for her role as a cynical photographer in George Cukor's classic romantic comedy, The Philadelphia Story (1940).
Charles Ruggles, whose illustrious career spanned six decades, appeared in Trouble in Paradise (1932), Murders In The Zoo (1933), Alice in Wonderland (1933), Our Hearts Were Young and Gay (1944), and The Parent Trap (1961), among many other films. John Carroll's notable movies include Pilot X (1937), In Old Los Angeles (1948), and the Howard Hawks dramatic adventure, Only Angels Have Wings (1939).
When a woman doctor pays a visit to the country to see her uncle, she falls in love with one of his neighbors.

Since I am a huge fan of Charlie Ruggles (where have all those actors gone?) & I like Ruth Hussey, I gave this a try. I'm not sorry...I'll watch it again. But it's pretty run of the mill, we all know how this ends kind of story. Still, Charlie Ruggles is always watchable, & the scenes he's in are worth it.
