Description by OLDIES.com:
In its Golden Age, Hollywood boasted many delightful actresses who could play beautiful, smart, funny working girls. But when it came to beautiful, smart, funny career women, Rosalind Russell was the ideal choice. In this polished romantic comedy, she portrays a judge wooed by Jeff Sherman (Walter Pidgeon), an urbane newspaperman. Sherman's real intent is to put the lady in a compromising position so that his boss (Edward Arnold) can blackmail her into a favorable ruling in his messy divorce case. But the soon-smitten reporter didn't count on Her Honor being quite so beautiful, smart and funny. Academy Award winner Norman Taurog directs the ensuing comic misunderstandings and mayhem with a feather-light hand.
Rosalind Russell stars as a no-nonsense judge who dabbles in sculpting in her spare time. Walter Pidgeon costars as a reporter assigned to discredit Rosalind after she rules against his boss (Edward Arnold) in a divorce case. Pidgeon plans to frame the judge in a compromising situation, then blackmail her into reducing the alimony. He succeeds in humiliating Rosalind, but regrets his actions when he realizes he's fallen in love with her. All ends happily in this glossy derivative of MGM's earlier LIBELLED LADY (36).
