Description by OLDIES.com:
Shortly after their star-pairing in Preston Sturges' The Lady Eve, Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda were re-teamed in this lesser-known screwball comedy about a hardworking, intelligent, modern woman and a handsome but slightly old-fashioned playboy. On a ski trip, rich, idle Peter Kirk (Fonda) pursues and falls (literally) for Helen Hunt, M.D. After a courtship of hypochondria, she agrees to marry him on the condition that she will continue to practice medicine. Will the very jealous Peter be able to reconcile himself to his wife seeing male patients? Laughs and sophistication abound from Claude Binyon and Wesley Ruggles, the writer/director team behind Too Many Husbands. Newly remastered.
A daffy romantic comedy released in Great Britain under the title GOOD MORNING DOCTOR, this film reunites the two stars of THE LADY EVE. Henry Fonda plays Peter Kirk, a wealthy but bored playboy who has a skiing accident while admiring a beautiful woman. The woman turns out to be a doctor, Helen Hunt (Barbara Stanwyck), who treats the injuries to his rear end. The two fall in love and marry. But Peter, who has too much time on his hands, becomes jealous of his wife's time with her male patients. Helen makes him look for a job to keep him from stewing. Because he has no experience, the only position that Peter can get is as a department store clerk. The other workers there discover that he's a millionaire and force him to leave, causing him to rethink how he is going to spend his free time.
