Finding himself attracted to her, he pretends to be a student in her class, not revealing he’s Gannon, whom she despises. As they bob and weave around their mutual growing attraction, they both begin to gain respect for each other’s approaches to reporting news, but how will Erica react when she finds out who he really is?.
Plot: A rugged city editor poses as a journalism student and flirts with the professor.

College versus Experience — Gable “versus” Day!!! Fun!
This fun movie shows the “old school – Learn on the Job” Clark Gable versus “new school – Go to school first” Doris Day.
Post World War II, people WERE going to college more for skills (such as journalism) that they used to learn on the job. This was a real debate.
The movie is fun and supporting actor, Gig Young is great as the very likable “Mr. Perfect” who is Gable’s rival for Day.
It’s not quite suitable for little kids — as an old girlfriend of Gable’s (a singer who moves like a stripper—excuse me exotic dancer) does her stuff. Tho she’s a great foil for Gable’s lack of emotional maturity.
I love Gig Young’s deft and friendly analysis of Gable, including Gable’s feelings for Day, and Gable’s maturity issues…Almost like two knights jousting, but honoring well all Knight’s rules
and liking each other the same.
Extra fun bits: There’s a great running dialogue about journalism that’s quite interesting. Sensationalism versus “think pieces”. Education versus apprenticeship.
*** You know they come together at the end,
but whether journalism is better or worse for transforming into a degree job, well, hmmm…
